I think they go under the name 'Alegrias' model. Then the 1A is about 4000€ and the cross braced 'Pasion' model which I upgraded to is 5500€ and he does specials above that.
Yes, now I remember: it said 'Alegrias' on the label. It was one of the better flamencas I played in Madrid.

Here's my little walk on the flamenco side:

Also, I should be receiving a 2013 Hippner Barbero blanca on Friday, so I'll be enjoying a new guitar weekend ahead!...
Did I miss a post? Has it arrived yet? Inquiring minds want to know. :D
Happy new guitar weekend!

Hi Cathy!

The new guitar arrived in good order. I'm going to put a new set of strings on and then give it some quality time this weekend. Attached are a few photos.

So sorry about the "sideways" photo. If you click on each photo, you'll be able to view in the proper perspective.

Enjoy the guitar.
I'm quite sure you'll get something out of books and videos.

Striking! Love the contrasts. Enjoy & be sure to take breaks from playing for food and some rest;-)

Thanks for the good wishes everyone! I put on a set of J45s this afternoon and was disappointed. Not as loose and raspy as the set that come on the guitar. Any blanca recommendations for a player who prefers a lighter guage of flamenco string? I do have a set of La Bella 820Bs on order.

On a lighter side I quite like the LaBella 2001 Professional light tension. Also very nice is Luthier 20 popular for flamencas, though not as light tension as the LaBella. I wouldn't consider dAddario J45 as a good set for flamenco. Another possibility would be Savarez Corum Normal Tension with New Crystal trebles and fluorocarbon g string (needs to be bought extra).
