To paraphrase another thread, "Can't afford an original Fleta."

What are the best alternatives?

I refer to Fleta guitars built over the last 20 years and your impressions of sound, etc.

I can’t comment unfortunately - the last 20 years has been mainly Gabriel Snr or Gabriel Jr in more recent years. I did own an Ignacio Fleta from 1965 but have no idea how this relates to the son’s/grandson’s instruments.

The best Fleta alternative is the Fleta model made by Anders Sterner in Eugene, Oregon. Sound and workmanship are superb.

I too thought Anders Sterner's Fleta model sounded very, very good.
