Well, yes, you never know.
It may well have ended up to be a mediocre sounding guitar from an avg typical Spanish factory made to similar specs as the well known Esteve, and it would have just been another valuable 300 dollars down the drain. That is how I like to look at it
It could have been exactly like an Esteve 8 in feel, looks, playability, durability and soulful sound. ...
Then I would really slap myself in the face!
