And they sounded so well, also in the treble department. Perhaps it would be interesting to try the PC 205 with another set of strings ? and, maybe, the "normal" sound is somehow in the character of "Spanish" sound, so wisely described by @lagartija as "muddy"
at the Kent Guitars we read:
"…The overall character is Spanish and reminiscent of some of the better Madrid guitars or even the cedar tones of some Fletas…."

The reason is simple, a couple of years a go most of the guitar manufacturing was diverted to China but sold as they were done by alhambra in valencia, the manufacturing team didn't liked that so they parted and founded Paco Castillo.
- Treble could be better with more overtones on high registers...

Some people bought it in Portugal and/or Spain for ca 800-900 Euro, in my country the PC 205 is expensive, it costs today almost $ 2000. The problem may be, that as I read you are based in the US, and it might be a problem and additional costs to get the PC to USA. Still I stay with hope that just for the good of us - classical guitars aficionados all over the world one of US dealers of reputation will consider to represent the Paco Castillo instruments in your great country.

I wonder which strings do you use ?
