First, I hope I have this topic in the right place.
My brother found a Hernandez classical guitar at a church tag sale. I don't even think the guitar was for sale, he saw it in the basement and asked one of the workers if he could purchase it. Anyway, it's either a $300 or $3,000 guitar. If it's all solid wood, then it should be up there in price. I am going to be picking up the guitar this weekend to get cleaned up, humidify and install new strings. I believe the guitar is from the 60's, i think. Is there anyway to tell if it is an all solid wood or not? I own a nice Almansa 402 with a solid top, but laminated back and sides, if the Hernandez has a brighter and clearer tone with more volume than my Almansa, will that mean the Hernandez is all solid? Thanks in advance for responding..
