: Hi I just read this. I just purchased an Aria A553 Flamenco guitar on ebay for a couple of hundred. It has a few little marks but what a beautiful sound It was made in 1972 solid spruce top and maple sides and back. When Aria first visited the U.S around 1964 it was dissapointing because his guitars were rejected. He returned home and proceeded to improve his Guitars so he improted the best timbers. The serial no of my Guitar is 34819. I realize I would have to pay a couple of thousand to get a better Flamenco Guitar.
Are you sure it has a solid top? I have an aria A553, but i think it has a laminated top, but I'm not sure
