Aria made by Amalio Burguet?

Have you ever seen a guitar like this? Must be some special Aria version outsourced to the Burguet workshop?

All the best from Sweden

I lucked upon an Aria flamenco made by Ryoji Matsuoka. Here's info from the dealer I bought it from.

For a few years during the late 1960s and early 1970s, Matsuoka produced the higher end Aria guitar models for Shiro Arai, founder of Aria .

A lot of Aria guitars are made in Spain so my guess is this is not a one off. They also own the Jose Antonio brand which I think this is a made up spanish name. However they really are made in Spain, mainly for the Japanese market. I tried one Jose Antonio a few months ago, as some of them are sold in the UK. They are nice, full sounding and balanced guitars.

I didn't buy it. Seller wanted 700 Euro :) Its probably "worth" it, but I would maybe pay 350-400 for it.
