We've got an excellent piece of Classical guitar history in the shop today: a 1983 Paulino Bernabe Sr. in Indian Rosewood and Bearclaw Spruce. After learning the art of Classical lutherie from none other than José Ramirez III, Bernabe Sr. opened his own shop in 1969, where he pioneered a new bracing system.
This particular instrument has opened up fabulously over the past three decades, and now has a clean and articulate voice to match its fierce projection. The trebles are crisp and focused; bass notes warm but articulate! Setup to play smoother than butter, this Bernabe Sr. Classical is in stellar shape with many more years under its belt. Wrapped up in a Mark Leaf flight case, this guitar is ready to travel anywhere, at any time, for any gig.

1983 Bernabe, Paulino Classical -  Classical Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"I appreciate the evenness and balance across the strings. You can tell when an instrument's been lovingly played in, and this Bernabe Sr. bears the hallmarks: easy resonance, clear fundamental, responsiveness and projection." - Paul Heumiller
