Thank you, Steve, for your kind words ! Music by Maestro Eliseo certainly is most beautiful, and my story shows how the chain of people of a good will may bring beautiful results.

Wonderful story thank you. Have you had any experience with Amalio Burguet 1A?

What is the price difference for you, seeing that you live in the US?

Dear PuraVida,

I think that I really understand your dilemma; if possible - try to test play both guitars/models, possibly in a company of musician friend, maybe a teacher, who would play the instruments for you and who would serve as advisor.

If this is not possible then I would try to find a friendly person who has an access to both guitars and ask this person not only for his/her opinion but also for test playing it for me via Skype or similar remote service. This was the case with me and my Antonio Picado model 60 - I am eternally grateful to my dear Friend - Maestro Eliseo Fresquet Serret who has played his Picado guitars for me and has been answering my numerous questions via Skype. I have proceed in similar way with my other guitar - the son of a seller - a student in music school played the guitar for me via Skype and then I decided to but this instrument.

Finally manage to record her voice. I've put the link in my AP60 thread here. Please get the link here.

I've almost sold her away, but unbearable and confirmed my feeling to keep her forever. After all, this spanish girl friend is my first Luthier made.

Cheers!

Good Morning Jon, the price difference is including shipping from Miami to SF about 150 Euros or $175; Amalio B1a the more expensive.
