Used Francisco Navarro guitar - what... 

Hello,
I've recently bought a 2006 FN flamenco guitar quite inexpensively and was under impression that it was a student model. However, looking closer, I found a stamp and a signature on the label of the guitar which suggested that it could be a concert model. Also there is a reinforcing black strip at the back of the neck. On the other hand there is no mosaic center strip in the box and tuners look quite cheap (same as on my Yamaha but with black worms). Does anybody know if 2006 year concert model has all these features? I've attached few pictures that may be helpful and will really appreciate your comments.

Yeah that must be the Concert model judging by the signature. Congrats, Navarros are worth every penny.

You sir, got a guitar. not just any guitar, you got your guitar. It is in fact very real. And for whatever name it can be called it is the sound that is important. does it sound like a guitar you are going to keep?

as we all know, a rose by any other name....

Thank you Gentlemen,

I really like the guitar, it has slightly high action but still quite manageable. Once I set all recording gizmos I will try to upload a sample.
Once you get it it's you baby ...

I think you got burned dude. But 'cos I feel sorry for you I'll give you a couple hundred for it, if you pay to ship it to me.
