Guitar made in Brazil in the first half of the 70, I do not know the newer models ..
I do not know the species used, all I can say is that on mine it's massive!
form is special, just to see the photo but up close it's really beautiful! age has brought him a warmer color than the model presentation, the head is beautiful and the rose .. we feel good quality work
The handle is very nice end to a sound, with good access to acute, without more (after the 15th case is a bit acrobatic, but it has other qualities ..)
the balance is perfect in a sitting position, contrary to what one might think, it is placed on the thigh and she is all alone! (Well, maybe not need to tempt fate either ...)
The sound is rather unique, very interesting rhythmic or arpege .. how to say? it is very warm, with a spectrum rather low-medium, well rounded and balanced
it lacks power for the wild chorus, probably because of reduced dimensions a bit of cash, but the sound is far from being unusable.
it should, against great accompaniment to jazz or gypsy .. it's not really a guitar dedicated to blues, but there are others!
I bought a few months ago, used obviously, for 100 euros! This inevitably leads me to the indulgence, but this guitar is not a gadget, and it has other argument that its original form
at this price I buy it back without hesitation! but it is not its real value ..
say that if you cross a one day, it deserves a try and you may be the favorite!
