Before you order anything, make sure to check out the options available in Vietnam. I've tried the 62 with double back and while it sounded nice, it was not that much better than my Raimundo. Also if you want to get an AP then go for the 60. I got some conversation with David Picado, Antonio's son and he told me, in his own words, "In general, the higher the model the 'better' but, I would say, no big difference between Mod. 60, 62 and C1 should be expected." That being said, my next guitar will be an AP. I really like their business model and honesty.Thuy Tran wrote: ↑Fri Jun 23, 2017 12:32 pmHello Jacek,
I've recently joined the forum . I 'm very interested in your post two years ago about the purchase of the Antonio Picado model 60 as actually I'm considering buying a luthier guitar . I hv seen on AP web , they have model 60 , model 62 and model C1 (concierto ) . Do you have experience and knowledge about these models and what made you chose model 60 and not 62 or C1 ?
Thank You ,

The Picado 62 bass was too much for me when I tried it while the Raimundo sounds a bit more balanced. It suits my taste better. The 2 guitars are very well made and you can't go wrong with any of them. Both of the guitars I tried already broke in, to be clear. The 148 was a bit newer, actually. But I do agree that the Picado 62 I tried was much louder.
My 62 was definitively a Madrid guitar( big sound predominant bass, not a Torres guitar ), with a slightly taller box (100 to 110 vs the 95 to 100 in the raimundo), the fan layout was the same as Fleta typical one. AFAIK Picado was influenced by builders like Fleta and Ramirez, there was no "catalonian" guitar school, so they picked up a bit from here and there...Jacek A.

As we know the Picado luthierie is situated in Berga, area of Barcelona. I am really interested in your, Mr. Rain, opinion.
