This Barcelona Taurus was built for the Condal shop in 1967. Taurus also built estudio model guitars for the Ramirez shop diring this time. This particular guitar has design elements of Fleta and Torres. The seven strut fan is lightly done and it's a fine playing guitar. The sound is balanced with a sweet vintage tone. I've owned the guitar for several years. The original lacquer finish had checked badly so I took the opportunity to remove it and apply French polish. It now has a nice vintage patina. The back crack was repaired prior to my ownership and has several cleats along the length of the back. There's room to lower the saddle a bit if desired but she plays well as is. The period case is missing two latches, but will protect it well for shipping. Overall it's a unique, affordable, vintage instrument that's fun to play and sounds like Spain in 1967! I would prefer to only sell in the USA. All offers or possible trade ideas are welcome. Shipping will be $85.00 in the 48. Best regards, Tim
