Since I heard about Paco Castillo, I was indeed fall in love with the 205 by all her pictures and was desperate to hear her voice. However, not after more than a year, finally managed to arrange with the local dealer (one and only person), I tried the Paco Castillo 205 cedar top.
Based on current Spanish pricing (not my local pricing, which I think its considered a bit mark up), thought its finishing, its quality, its material, etc. etc. are definitely worth the stated price. Truly and exactly same as the pictures and catalog from the internet, very beautiful guitar.
Sound wise, (the most subjective part just like wine tasting), she has a very balance tone, loudness and good projection with more towards the bass. It's not an attractive type. I'm not too sure is this the substance that differential between "factory-made/mass-made" guitar and a luthier made guitar. Or, maybe how a guitar is being qualified by its price tag. I really can't register a character like what I can hear samples from a GV Rubio, to the Hanika, or even the Alhambra 11P that I've played from another shop. In my very personal opinion, it just sound so normal.
Without heart and desire, talent is nothing.
