10-string classical guitar does not sound as boxy as it looks. According to the information on the label inside the soundhole it was built by Juan Garcia Ojeda in Las Palmas Spain in 1957. I have to wonder if perhaps he was an apprentice luthier at the time because the construction methods with the straight-edged sides and the flat neck profile make for a much simpler design than the classically-shaped classical guitar. It looks like something inspired by the Cubism art movement of the early 20th Century. I wonder also how well this shape would work for a seated classical guitarist.
This guitar is currently being offered for sale on eBay UK with a Buy It Now price of £550.
