i have aan A. Solar Gonzalez flamenco guitar...............i was wondering if anyone had any good info on this maker??

it seems be a very rare guitar. until recently i've only known of one other one.................but i see that another member,(guitarrista), here has a classical made by him..............and from what they have said to me is that they couldn't believe it..................that some else had one as well......

So i'm going to some pictures of it up but i may need to use more than one post...............

Don Pepe !!!..................maybe you know something about this maker???

Any and All info welcome.......... :D

Nacio!!

Thank you!! :applauso: :okok: :okok:

I hope to post pictures of my Anselmo Solar Gonzalez classical in the next day or two, here. Maybe after that I could ask you for more pictures - some closeups of the rosette and the label inside, for example??

Anybody else have an A.S.Gonzalez??

I've always wondered about the luthier. I really like how the guitar is balanced, how it sounds. And how it smells !! Ooohh.. :love:

Mine has different tone woods from Nacio's guitar, but I think the basic body shape is the same or very similar.

:guitare:

Nacio: I do not know about that name. It seems to be probably named after someone, not that someone named that way made it. You know, like Principe de Vergara, or so. However, judging for the photos, it seems to be a fine guitar. Every time I see a flamenco guitar with white golpedores, the image of a very good player comes to mind. I do not know why! I saw the lines of the guitar and look fine to me. Maybe a pic of the label and a pic of the inside will help me findout more about it.

A rosette says a lot about a guitar. That rosette is superb.

I have to go through the inevitable glitches and jump the (un)expected digital hoops until I successfully upload a picture here :oops: :oops:

you know i think this may the book i seen this makes name and history in..........under Anselmo Solar..........
http://www.guitarsalon.com/include/imag ... Romanillos

and i think this is interesting............because i thought i heard from someone else about him originally being a violin maker.........and this Luthier talks about what he's learned from his A.S.Gonzalez relating to violin making........

Pepe, do you have that book metioned up there ??.................or anyone else?? :wink:

Nacio. Yes. I do. It is kind of a dictionary. I will look for that name. I saw you are selling the prototype of the solista. I wonder who is going to be the lucky buyer. That is a pretty guitar. I have made couple of prototypes for someone, but without any closing. Usually, whe we make a prototype, we put all we have in it.

Thanks Pepe !!..........i can't wait to see what you find...................yeup!..........i'm selling the proto-type Solista.
it really is a one of a kind it has some nice fancy's to it that the ones they are selling doesn't ....................plus it REALLY has that bark you want from a blanca.
