She's beautiful!

Does one have to order direct from Spain to get one a Burguet guitar?

I order it directly from Burguet, but you can use online stores, too.

Hi Vanessa,

I played a 1a Burguet in London and it was a fantastic guitar and next on my list to buy.
One question, do you build all traditional guitars or are there any lattice/ double top models ?
Regards
Gary

My Burguet 2F is still my favorite go to guitar. It's surprising that a "student" model is so good.

I'd second that on the 1a Burguets... every one of them I've played have been wonderful instruments, especially when considering the price point.

If I ever go to Spain, Burguet Guitars will be on my itinerary!

Hi Vanessa,

I tried the 3M and Vanessa models the other day, and was impressed with the sound. I read some time ago there would be a Burguet Torres model. Do you have any information about that? Thanks

I bought my first Burguet guitar, a 1a, in 1996, after trying many other guitars that were hand-made by a variety of makers. The 1a outperformed them in every respect, and I kept the guitar until about three years ago.

I'm interested to know if the AB and AC guitars are only cosmetically better than the 1a, or if the construction methods, and thus sound and playability, offer an improvement over the 1a. I have never tried an AB or AC model.

According to Forsyths' website the AB has double back of cedar laminated onto African Rosewood, double sides of Cypress laminated onto African Rosewood for stiffness, carbon fibre reinforcement in the neck. It should have more volume and sustain in theory. Also, the back resonates if you hold the guitar away from you.

I tried the AB as Forsyths' before and I can confirm that the guitar is really loud. You can clearly see the cedar layer of the back inside the soundhole and the grains are really tight. The neck is really flat that drove me insane when I tried it, though.

Amalio Burguet is one of the better factories in Valencia, and makes a variety of models for Estudio guitars to concert instruments. I have been in their factory, and it is well equipped. Handmade, however, is a relative term. For the purest it might mean that everything is done by hand, with traditional hand tools. Obviously, a modern factory can't operate that way. But traditional methods of assembly is another matter-- and particularly with important components like the top-- a skilled luthier may be involved. The involvement of a skilled luthier certainly is greater in their higher level models.

Being the devils advocate here, you said in a previous post that you’d recommend Adalid or Hernandez and now that Burguet is one of the best , if you were to say one is better which would it be ? ;-)
