FYI Bernabe had a relation with Esteve until about 5 years ago, when personal matters having nothing to do with guitars, ended their relation. He currently is building his models 15, 30, and 50 in his Madrid workshop where he employees several luthiers making guitars by hand using traditional methods. He makes the PB line of guitars in his workshop at home. The guitars being build in his Madrid workshop are of a much higher quality than those from the Esteve factory. As he explain the difference to me, we are now only building concert guitars, it takes the same amount of time to make a concert guitar as a student model. The primary differences between models is in the quality of woods being used and machines. These differences are heard in clarity and richness of tone.
