  4. The beautiful lady has elegant hands and fingers, beautiful attention to detail and so articulate and well spoken. Love her story. Excellent videography and editing capturing the earthy passionate flamenco vibe. I would love to own one of these guitars one day!

  5. Any person who makes guitars or really most anything that is made by hand, will never be able to maintain perfect fingernails, with them being beautifully painted. Cute attempt at trying to convince everyone that you actually make these guitars, but I'm calling you out. Whoever is actually making these guitars, is an excellent craftsman, but it ain't this chick.

  6. How weird I just came across this. I'm just waiting for the delivery of My New Spanish Made Guitar 👍 ( where else could you possibly buy a guitar from but Espana' 🇪🇸 )
