Hi I recently bought a guitar with the same label and am trying myself to learn more about it. Have you uncovered anything interesting?

I've also got a Guitarras Espanolas guitar, has a 1919 date on it (about right, it was my grandfather's guitar, brought to the US from South Africa). It is the Cid Campeador model. Factory says established in 1864 in Valencia (Spain I assume). Anyone got any more info?

Re: tatay guitar

I have a Tatay guitar. It says Vicente Tatay Tomas, in the middle of the label VITATO.
It is made of African mahagony, and spruce: solid body not laminated. Bridge is separated a little but is very straight needs fret work also. It is for sale. If some body knows average value please let me know. thanks.

Tatay guitar

For many years Vicente Tatay's guitars were sold through the Spanish Music Center in New York City, which is where I bought mine in the early '60's. At that time he was making both classical and flamenco styles, ranging in price from about $89 - $450.

I have a V. Tatay, New York spruce/mahogany, student model. hand stamp dated Apr 1958. It is my favorite guitar.

I also recently acquired a Vicente Tatay Tomas, Cedar/Rosewood. It is a beautiful sounding instrument. The neck is a bit large for my hand and a very cool headstock. unclear of the year of manufacture so far. The only hand written info is an "R" on the cross brace below the sound hole.
