I hate these white Golpeadors.
They destroy all the beauty of a Guitar.
I mean does it make sence to use nice woods, work hours on building a nice guitar with it and then after it is finished, destroy everything with a white color 10 Dollar Golpeador??

I agree Arash - it looks awful. And while obviously sound is most important, no reason why you can't have sound AND beauty.

Why would anyone do that??

The golpeador looks terrible! like some wierd 70's retro design.
otherwise its quite nice.

The white golpeador is normally because the guitar has damage on the soundboard. When you use a transparent golpeador over damage, you will not only see the damage but will also get some ugly airbubbles.

I think the whole guitar is ugly. Look at the heel cap and the headstock It doesnt look very atracctive to me. A typical "fantastic old" E-bay piece of s***

i'm dubious as to the "brazillian" rosewood. most brazillian ive seeen is more purpley or at least not so cinnamon colored.

and the grain is really....erratic lol

i think its a dollar store ****bird guitar. the headstock is almost not even carved, the heel is.... gross. the rosette looks almost as cheap as a decal and same with the binding lol

You all clearly have no idea what your talking about. The guy auctioning this guitar specifically states that this is a "Master Guitar" and a "masterpiece"!

He also states this is something you cannot see every day and I have to agree. If I saw this everyday, I would hit my head on a brickwall hoping to knock some sense into my head to find the reason for bidding on this thing.

This is not just a guitar. It is a Perfecto Perez!

i agree, just cuz its old makes it good. i mean everything that is old is better than new stuff.

i imagine perfecto perez probably had a better concept of guitar making than antonio torres. clearly a master here, a real flamenco classical master guitar

........because "flamenco classicals" are not a confused degenerate halfbreed lol.
