1970's Paracho, Mexico Classical Guitar
Coming from the original owner who purchased it new in Paracho, we know the J. Alvarez label is a fake. But that is part of the charm of this slightly crude, yet great sounding classical guitar. Most of the woods are not easily identifiable by this writer, schooled in the American/European guitar construction traditions. But the neck looks like mahogany, the fretboard is a lighter colored wood, painted black with a 350mm scale. Back and sides are mahogany look-alikes and the top is spruce with some attractive bear claw figure. String height is lowish and there are fret buzzes when played vigorously. All in all, a cool nice sounding nylon string guitar. $500 with a hard case.
