The only reason for selling my guitar is because I'm getting a new one from the same luthier with different specs and I can't afford to have two fine guitars. The guitar is in good shape, few common scratches over the top because of "rasgueados," but nothing extremely bad (See the pictures for details).

Looks like the nut width might be a typo?

Hi Guitar-ded,

Yes, it is the same guitar. I think something they offer promo coupons that could be applied to the purchase of this guitar.

Feel free to ask any questions.

]Hello,

I decided to do some demos of the guitar so people can have a more decent sonic reference of how this guitar sounds like.
This was recorded with a Blue Pro mic through Logic:
Demo1: [https://soundcloud.com/gustavo-samor/de ... -un-dia-de]
Demo2: [https://soundcloud.com/gustavo-samor/de ... ia-florida]
Demo3: [https://soundcloud.com/gustavo-samor/de ... pen-string]

Feel free to reach me out for any questions!
