Selling classical guitars

Where's a good place to advertise a 1979 Ramirez 1a on the net? E-bay doesn't seem to have any decent guitars for sale, so I'm guessing that's not a good place to try. Any suggestions?


Manuel Contreras Classical Guitars...

Where can I find NEW Contreras guitars, either "Student" or "Master" (concertist) for SALE? Can I get a "PRICE LIST" of the available models? I they STILL being made? (I've heard that the "old Manuel" has died... Is it true? -If so, is the family continuing the business?
I'd appreciate any information available on the "M. Contreras" hierarchy...
Many thanks!

Khono guitar

Would like to get approx. estimate for 1975 Khono #10 in excellent condition. Cedar top; Rosewood back and sides; mahogony neck; rosewood fingerboard; Gold plate machines;includes a mark leaf case.
In 991 had it appraised by reputable guitar shop(classical)for insurance purposes and they quoted me a replacement value price of
$ 3,900. The guitar is still in excellent shape. I would like to know what a good, reasonable price tag to put on it if I decide to sell it this year. All that have played on it have liked it. Good things about the third string , all strings balanced in sound etc...
Do you know if above is a reasonable price for Khono? If not do you know where I could get a good reading on the value of this Khono?
thanks in advance

Contreras - Carlevaro guitar

My tutor has a guitar of this model we believe it was made circa 1985.
It has a nameplate reading
Manuel Contreras - Model Systema.
This is totally without any sound hole or central outlet just the
peripheral gap around the perimeter of the top.
From the 'Mangore' website there seems to be a mixed view on whether
there were 4 or 20 made in this limited edition.
I would be most grateful if you can throw any light on this matter
and if you have any estimate of it's value - it is in mint condition.
Many thanks - Kind regards - Jack
