Tom, I purchased a Hernandis with the same label except it is a No. 3. I paid $150 about 8 years ago from a consignment wall in a guitar shop I took lessons at. The tone of my guitar is so pure and good, that I haven't been able to find any guitar yet that matches its tonal qualities. I got an email 2 years ago from The Sherry-Brener Co. in Chicago stating that these were mass-manufactured in shops in Spain and were not worth much; however, just recently, as I was warming up before my lesson, a guitarist who was practicing in the studio next door came out and heard me play. He asked to play my guitar and liked it so much he asked if I would take $3,000 for it! I declined. I love the sound of this guitar, as I'm sure you like yours.

Hopefully, this gives you some insight.

Good luck!

This guitar is two steps down from the Grand Concert. John Sherry bough a warehouse full of Argentinian rosewood and kept it for years to make exceptional guitars. A number were made about the time you purchased your guitar. Go to any good music shop with the guitar and have them look up the serial number under the top at the join of the fingerboard. They'll now where to look and can tell you of its value.

Retail I would guess at about $350 to 450 depending.

Antonio Hernandis No. 2 1969 Classical guitar

I bought this guitar in New York in a Antique Guitars Store in Down Town New York City. It's a beautiful, light and the best classical sound I have ever play and touched. I was offered $5000.00 in 1990 but I didn't take it. I like to know what is worth to someone that understand about music, sound and a Antique. I want $20,000.00 if you want to own a real antique piece.
