I bought this guitar in a Sam Ash store after examining and playing many classical guitars. I have small hands and was looking for a guitar that was not so huge. Many classical are very large with action that is too high. This guitar is perfect - low action for a classical, smaller body with big sound, and very light! It is enjoyable to play! I don't plan on using it as a strictly flamenco - I think it's great for all types of music. I also deal with Sam Ash a lot. They always give me good deals, and on this one, I was able to save money by trading in an older guitar.
