Where I live, there are several music shops. Although they sell a great variety of guitars, none has the category "flamenco guitar."
I'd like to buy a guitar to play flamenco. So, what features shall I look for to get that hard flamenco sound instead of softer, sustained classical guitar sound?
Appearantly, I cannot try all the guitars in the store, but I can ask for specific things such as front, side and back plate materials, width of zero fret etc.
Basically, my question is, how can I narrow down my choices for a flamenco guitar without playing it?
