Some people 

Are totally clueless. Say you have a very nice flamenco guitar. Possibly a collectors item or a guitar worth a lot. Say $15,000.00. However, you decide to sell it on ebay. You want to capture the beauty of the instrument so you start looking for a good background to place the guitar in so it looks nice.

Then you get an idea. "I know, I think I'll take photos of this guitar outside in the freezing cold with snow all around.

Only to ask yourself later, "damn! this crack wasn't here before? I wonder how that happened? Hopefully I can still get $15,000.00".

You'd think someone 'collecting' that quality of instrument would know better.

I just don't get it. Here's another one. This time, a Conde outside in the cold. This guy is killing me.

You are absolutely right. He had to take those pictures outside where the light was good.

But not to worry! He immediately brought the guitars back in the house and warmed the up in front of a nice blazing wood fire! See, he clearly knows exactly what he is doing!

Your probably right Deniz but instead of taking a chance on exposing the guitar to the cold and it's affects, I'd just get a camera with a flash.

RE: Some people (in reply to Ricardo

What I don't understand is why the seller keeps referencing Archangel? Caceres shares the same shop and maybe even tools but they are completely two different builders. Yet, the seller keeps trying to imply that this is also an Archangel??? or perhaps that Caceres has Archangel build his guitars???

The back cover of Tomatito's "Aguadulce" has always been painful to look at. I heard he then sold that guitar on e-bay for almost nothing because the fretboard and the back side got all deformed...

Grisha, I highly doubt that this guitar is anything of value. I'm sure Tomatito wouldn't have used a good guitar for this photo. If you look close at the head, it has something written on it as some of these cheap facotry guitars do. Which is probably why is sold for almost nothing.
