This works - thanks! One thing I find strange is that every A.S. Gonzalez guitar's rosette is different - did he make up a new design for each year? Is every rosette unique to the instrument? I wonder...tyke wrote:Let's see if this works:

The gold label under the maker's label is for the Spanish Guitar Centre in Newcastle.
If you put the pictures in dropbox or google drive, I can get them and resize them for you so they can be posted. In general make sure they are jpeg files (not png), and you can reduce file size in two ways - resizing the dimensions of the image, and reducing the "quality" of the image upon saving as a new modified image jpeg file. For fast and effective resizing, I always use the free "PIXresizer" program, available from David De Groot's free Windows software website at http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htmsoakley wrote: CAN ANYBODY HELP
I've tried posting picture but files are too big.
I can send pictures
Hi Carmen!carmen.page wrote:Hi, I am Carmen, Anselmo's daughter. Regarding the query about the rosettes, he used to have different designs for different types of guitar i.e. one for "palosanto guitars" one for "caoba guitars" etc. Also I think he used to make new designs from time to time.
Regarding the engraved signature at the base it the neck, I don't recall him doing this on his guitars. If you could post a picture I could see whether it is his signature or something I can recognise. Regards.
Wow, the signature sure looks like it is the same person! Great find!DenisJ_III wrote:Is it possible that it was this Jose Greco?
Greco was a flamenco dancer from the 50s - 60s and helped bring flamenco to a wider audience, including cinema appearances.
Just a thought....
