Chances are when you started to drive you bought a cheap car not a BMW...
The same can be said when you begin in flamenco. Sure the better guitars have better sound and playability, but they can be well outside your budget.
Here's my pick of guitars to search for when looking for your first cheap Flamenco guitar.
From Guitar Center
The Cordoba F7 is the only guitar out of this group I have played. It was a great guitar and I often got comments about the playability of it for such a cheap guitar.
Great value for Money
From Musicians Friend
Rodriguez guitars seem to be one of the few focused more on flamenco, so it merits a mention. Though a young player in the world of factory guitars the Rodriguez family has a respectable history in building guitars.
from Guitar Center
Yamaha have been making great guitars for years. I still own an old factory made one my father use to play when he was a boy and it is going strong. If anything you know these guys do quality control good.
From Guitars From Spain
Alhambra made a name for themselves selling cheap guitars internationally with the stamp "made in Spain." Given their success as a business their products must hold their own.
Fine Tuning your Cheap'ie
