1982 Juan Montero Aguilera Signed and Numbered 651. Flamenco Blanca with Gears
Juan Montero Aguilera Cordoba, Spain (1929-)
657 mm scale 52 mm Nut. Spruce Soundboard and Cypress back and sides. Fustero Gears. 5 Fan Braces, 3 regular size like we have seen in the last 300 Flamenco guitars sold here BUT, 2 very very small braces, we've never seen any thing like this at all before. Inside this guitar it has a solid band connecting the top and back to the sides. This has an old repair, there was a long crack more than 1 foot long repaired on the bass side. This still has a great sound. Local teachers with Masters degrees have endorsed their students to but it.
