I've just gotten my new (for me) secondhand ESTEVE 12! I can see Manual Adelito's signature on the inside. So exciting. I know that he has since passed away which makes the guitar even more special. It doesn't have a scratch. Clearly wasn't played much if at all. The wood smell is strong. It's very playable, really nice action and the tone is crisp. Projection is excellent. I'm glad I traded in my old guitar now.
