Re: Almirez guitar
: I have an Almirez acoustic guitar and need some info about the guitar.
: So if anyone know any site about it pleas let me know.
: I just bought an Almirez acoustic guitar and have been researching them. The label in my guitar states the company that sold is United Musical Instruments. They have no guitars listed on their website and currently sell band and orchestra instruments. They are a large corporation and apparently have bought up other instrument companies including Conn. My Almirez was made in Korea. It has a solid top and laminated back and sides. From what I could find out Almirez was a name that was used for guitars marketed in Europe. The fit and finish on mine is ok. I had to remove and reglue the bridge and reglue two braces. It is still in the clamping process so I don't know how it will sound. The neck is straight and in good shape. If I were guessing I would put it in the $200 dollar range if it were new. I'm anxious to see how it sounds. I hope this is helpful. I think the big instrument companies thought they could mass market guitars in the 1970's. I know Conn had a contract with Stuart Mossman to build guitars for them and then ruined them all by storing them in a warehouse with no climate control.
