This is a well played, but wonderful sounding European spruce over Brazilian rosewood classical guitar. It’s Spanish made (we acquired it in Spain), but carries no brand markings. The brand would have been on the paper label, but the label is no longer with the guitar. We estimate it was made in the 1940’s to 1950’s.

The top is 3-piece solid spruce (instead to two pieces, it's three pieces– the seams are visible when you look closely at the top – with a 3.5 inch wide section of spruce between the top/bass and bottom/treble side pieces). The back and sides are solid Brazilian rosewood.

The size is:

• Scale length: 648 mm – a great scale length for today’s players

• Nut width: 50mm

• Width of neck at 1st fret: 50mm

• Width at lower bout: 352mm (13 7/8 inches)

The guitar shows significant wear, but there are no cracks.

• All parts, bridge, tuners, everything: original

• 100% original finish

• Brazilian rosewood bridge

• Ebony fingerboard

(in great condition, showing little wear; and frets show little wear)

• Maple binding, top, and back

• Torres shaped head stock is a nice touch

• Action is good, no set up needed

• In a modern hard shell case

This is not a big bold sounding concert guitar. Its tone is not loud but charming and lyrical, and the Brazilian imparts great sustain. It’s for intimate playing, with it’s great scale length, drawing out the best tone that 70+ year old brazilian over spruce from Spain offers.
