Default Vicente Carrillo guitars (1A Especial Madgascar)

Considering the purchase of a brand new 2019 Carrillo - I'd never heard of his instruments until about 2-3 months ago and for some reason have become a little fascinated. I really like my Solista, but I'm considering something "next level" to run with my custom steel strings.

I've done many searches on the forums and Youtube (and put a thread up on Delcamp as well), but there's limited info.

Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.....thought maybe I'd find someone with first hand experience.

Well, Carrillo makes good guitar. His primera are well built tools, ok for the price he asks. Anyway, there are excellent luthiers in Spain who are not (yet) as known as others and they build fantastic guitars for half the price..

I've checked out the comments on Delcamp and it sounds like it's a good guitar!!

Love those soundports on your Solista.. If I had the guts, I'd be getting details from you to do a similar process on my C-10 Cedar.
