Does anyone know this headstock? 

Hey, does anybody know, which luthier uses or has used this headstockshape?
I bought a guitar without label and wonder, who built it.
Any hint is appreciated.
Thanks and greetings,
Ben

And some more pictures, which probably help to identify:

Hi Ben, did you look with a little mirror ( or try to make a film /pictures with your phone) at the backside of the top? Or he inside of the guitar.
A lot of times guitar builders put a stamp or a signature inside.

Good luck!
Peter

Thanks Peter, so far i have only seen the guitar on photos, but thats definitely one of the first things, i will do, as soon, as i get my hands on it. But im too curious and thought, that probably somebody here on the foro has seen this headstock before or has a guess, where it probably was built.
Greetings
Ben

The guitar arrived today and is really a great flamenca negra, skillfully built, interesting wood chocices and bracing pattern, beautiful rosette and bridge, nice setup (8mm at the bridge and 2,8mm at the 12th fret/E) and 665mm scale length. And its a raw brutal sounding cannon!
Unfortunately no stamp or name of the luthier inside the guitar and it seems, that there never was a label inside.
I will post some more pictures the upcoming days, but i am not very hopeful anymore, that i will find out, who has built it.

benros, its a neat looking headstock. Is the top cedar or is the age of the guitar just making the spruce darker. What country did you purchase it in? USA?

Hey Dave,

yes, the guitar is definitely well and skillful built and almost certain from a spanish luthier. I just cannot find out who built it. Its a cedar top and i bought it in germany. Im currently restoring the finish, so that i can apply a golpeador. I will post some better pictures, when its done.

Have the wood used on the back and sides checked out. If it is Cocobolo then it is most likely made in Paracho, Mich. Mexico.

This guitar is not in the USA. It's in Europe. Less likely to be built in Mexico. But who knows.

@benros
How much did you pay if I may ask?

@kenjo138: No, its not cocobolo, its indian rosewood.

@devilhand: I think so to. Would be the first second hand mexican guitar which comes along my way on the german market.

I paid 300 Euros, which is a bargain for this guitar and on top i found a functioning Carlos Pickup inside.
