This is an amazing sounding, all solid classical guitar. Sounds fantastic with a straight neck and plays like a dream. I purchased this guitar from Guitar Salon International for $2300 used. I have since stopped playing classical guitar to focus more on electric. I am including a Humicase (a few superficial scuffs to the case). This is the original "yellow label" model which is more highly regarded than the "blue label" models with truss rod made after Cordoba took over the Loriente line!

It is used so there are minor signs of use with some superficial marks in french polished top that you can see at an angle in the light. There is a superficial scratch on one of the sides of the guitar the about 1cm in length that you can see in the pictures caused by the latch on the case.

Contact me for any questions or for pictures.

I didn't think that the Marieta was a flamenco guitar. Since you say that it has a golpeador, is it a flamenco model?

No, it is definitely the usual classical model. Action is set for classical play. No flamenco fret buzz. I had assumed a previous owner had the tap plate installed. Strangely when looking to list this guitar for sale I found another Marieta also with a golpeador. That being said, I don't play flamenco so I never used it. Doesn't seem to have any affect on the sound.

I am in Aliso Viejo, so pretty close. I'm still a month or so out from buying a guitar (still trying to convince the wife I need a new one), but maybe I could swing by and check it out? I am available this weekend if you still have it and have time. Otheriwise, weekends are usually good. I think I'm too new to PM for now.
