I have seen a few guitars made by Yunah but I have not seen the Santos copy. Congratulations on your new guitar.

This is a very interesting guitar indeed.
Was it common for Santos to shape the transverse bars as in the pictures?
Some guitars made by Santos have a quite open sound, so that you can use them even for flamenco pieces. Is this the case with this guitar?
Thanks

Mentioning flamenco guitars: I once played a Santos Hernandez flamenca blanca at Siccas and that was the one guitar there I would have taken with me if not for not being an impulsive buyer (well, mostly :lol:; my recent acquisition of the Stenzel quilted maple guitar was close to that :D ).

When listening to the sound clips of the Santos Hernandez and the Park, I found them to be nearly identical, which is a considerable feat. If the playability and responsiveness (especially the responsiveness) is up to snuff this is a remarkable instrument.

Please comsider a very low quality recording; the differences could be much bigger in truth...
