Hello,

 

I have been looking to buy a good Oribe guitar. I have contacted the usual suspects on the web and have found nothing. Any information would be greatly appreciated and very welcome.

Thanks,

misterfloyd

Hi,

R.E. Bruné has one on his website. It may still be available:

http://www.guitarfindersintl.com/contact.html  Patrick Read has a large collection of used Oribes. BTW…there has been an Oribe Pro-A floating around eBay and Reverb.com/ listed as a “One Of A Kind” prototype. In fact, Mr. Oribe now says, it is one of five instruments he had Lusi Sevillano make in Mexico. According to Jose, it had been too many years when the seller contacted him about the instrument’s history, his memory had failed him. It was “NOT” made 100% in his Vista Shop.

I do have a very nice 1972 Oribe Concierto I picked up a few years ago (back in the old classical guitar forum days.)   It is an excellent guitar & I enjoy it when I play it.  I just don’t play it very often.  If you are interested let me know.   Thank you,  Bill

“I do have a very nice 1972 Oribe Concierto”

 

Oribe only made about five or so of that model. He was trying to pruduce a less costly instrument at the end of the Inglewood days…. nice guitars though. Is that your Oribe on Reverb.com?

Hi Paul; You were very helpful when I was looking into this one a few years back.  I don’t have it listed,and hadn’t given much thought to selling it. I just happened to see the post this morning. The one I have is like the one on Reverb, but it has Fusteros,

This is an early Oribe Pro-A I use in a restaurant gig, Indian and cedar, 660mm. It is 30 years old now and over the years had developed the usual “blotches” on the back and sides. Not Oribe’s fault, but something to do with the original finish the Asturias Co. used in Japan. After about 15 years, they all seem to develope this blotch problem, Indian or cocobolo both. Any of you out there have a Pro-A with no blotches? Anyway, I just had Ted Owen drop off the guitar with German Vazquez Rubio in his Los Angeles shop. He did a really nice job of re-finishing the back and side. If any of you have this problem, I highly suggest you have him re-finish your instrument. I added the Gotoh Hauser machines from LMI. BTW, David Schramm re-finished a Pro-A for Mel Hallam in Las Vegas. David can tell us more about the problem and the fix.
