Absolutely beautiful instrument. Handmade by the Huipe family of Paracho, Mexico for Casa Montalvo. Very loud and with a powerful tone. Plays great! The top is solid spruce and the back and sides are ziricote. There are only some light scratches on the back and some small finish cracks where the sides meet at the bottom of the guitar. I’ve tried to take pictures of the finish cracks. Beautiful workmanship and beautiful woods. This is a really nice guitar. I’m selling for a friend. He estimates the manufacture date as around 2006. I’m trying to get a classical guitarist to come by and let me record him playing this guitar. I will post a youtube link if I can make that happen.
