HELP FOR GUITAR 

Hello dear friends,
Please could you say something about this guitar? I want to buy it, but seller has no information about that. I didn't play it yet. Do you have any idea about this brand and what is the level of this guitar for beginner, intermediate or pro?
I know, to make a comment is difficult with only photos but I am open for any idea.
Thank you.

RE: HELP FOR GUITAR (in reply to bluesier

Im no expert, and some here definitely are....but.


"Spaine" ??

Chitara Klassic seems to be Romanian.

My very uneducated guess would be it's trash.

I mean I think its very ugly. Brown (gold) frets!
And the headstock inlays. not for me.

All depends on the price I suppose.

Again, someone here might come along and tell you that it's an extremely rare Romanian maker from Transylvania who made exceptional instruments and you shoul dbuy it right now.

"the tim hanared in 1780"
I imagine thats meant to be something like...."In the time honoured tradition"

Thanks for your reply and comments. And you are right about on many things. Most probably it is not extremely rare Romanian maker from Transilvania and it is trash
Price is approx. 200 Euro.

Yeah sorry if my comments seemed rude or anything.didn't mean to take any wind from your sails...

Where is that for guitar for sale? Online some place? Or in a shop near you?

What's your level of paying?

It looks like a Jose Ramirez knock off. Ramirez guitar head has the same shape. But the label says Hermanos.

My English is not well. So I am sorry if you misunderstood me. Your comment is not rude. I really laugh your comment about Transilvania :) I didn't pay attention to the spelling mistake on guitar label and i think this guitar is not good quality because probably there is no spelling mistake on label of a good quality guitar.
I found this guitar on letgo application in Turkey.
I didn't define any level of paying but i am looking for used guitars mostly.

The problem with an online purchase like this is the guitar might not even be playable. The tuners could be seized and who knows if the neck and action are any good. I think at any price you should pass on this one.

A lot less - I've bought one or two over the years and my range is between £10 and £20. If it's something you can string up and use as a "beater" and it does a turn - fine. It will probably never be a great guitar - you pays your money etc. I've used my purchases for two things. One, to use the tuners as a repair tool to pull cleats up using an old string. Two - as an exercise in making better/replace soundboard/tart up a bit. I've only got one more thing to do with stuff like this, and that is to make a "silent" practice model so I don't drive the neighbours crazy at midnight.
