About This Listing

Here is a lovely Japanese made Angelica M30 classical guitar. This is a traditional Spanish style classical with great Japanese craftsmanship. The 1970s are considered the "Golden Era" of Japanese guitar building. A little bit about Angelica guitars. These were made in Japan for Boosey & Hawkes, the legendary classical music publishing company in the UK. They were only sold in the UK but obviously over time, some have found their way into the US. The original hard case is structurally sound. The guitar comes with the original Sam Ash sales receipt. If you're looking for a great student level classical with a solid top and excellent tone, this is a great value. As I noted in the specs, there was damage to the lower treble bout which I believe was caused by a drop. I made sure everything internally is sound and repaired the top and edging as needed. Check it out.
