       For sale we have a beautiful cypress blanca made by Mexican luthier Salvador Castillo, who is considered by many to be the best luthier in Mexico, I've included a small bio from his site at the bottom of this page. The guitar is in great condition, a few light scratches/dings but nothing serious and nothing my camera is capable of capturing apparently. It is fitted with a clear scratchplate and also some nice planetary pegs which look like regular pegs but in fact have gears inside them making them much easier to use than regular pegs.
Original hardcase included. Epic sound, very flamenco, powerful voice across the board, loud and responsive. Its a beautiful guitar, tryouts encouraged (near Stirling Central Scotland). Any questions please ask, originally listed for £1500 now reduced to £1199.99. Here are some rough stats

       'Salvador Castillo was born in the famous guitar building town of Paracho Michoacan (Mexico) in February of 1969 to the guitar constructor Ramiro Castillo Barajas and Elvira Garcia Barajas. He grew up constructing guitars under his father’s supervision and started playing guitar at the age of 8. At the age of 20 he decided to start his own workshop. With the support of his father he became independent and began to experiment with his own guitar designs. In 2000 he worked together with the master luthier Abel García Lopez and made a replica of Hauser Guitar from 1927. In 2001 he participated in an annual competition for guitar constructors in Paracho and won 1st place in the student guitar division and 2nd place in the concert guitar division. Later, he studied classical music for two years in the Casa de la Cultura de Paracho under the tutelage of Wenceslao Huendo. At that time, Salvador formed a guitar duet performing popular music from the Michoacan region. During these years Salvador made many replicas of famous Spanish classical and flamenco guitars and eventually found his own style of construction. At present, he is constructing only his own guitar models and remains a serious student of flamenco guitar playing. Salvador’s guitars are known for their distinct sound and have been sold to many professionals and aficionados all over the world. On October 18th, 2010,Vicente Amigo performed in Morelia, Mexico playing on Salvador Castillo’s Flamenco negra guitar.'
