Sostenuto Applied to guitar?

Are there any examples of what a sostenuto pedal can do? Any examples found in piano music? And also that you have seen applied to classical guitar music?

Practically all classical guitar playing is "sostenuto" in the piano sense - the "dampers" are lifted all the time. It is rare that you would see instructions for string damping - maybe more in some modern compositions.
