: 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
