I was literally walking down the street yesterday when I walked past a whole lot of furniture type rubbish, I see a guitar neck in amongst it as the garbage collection truck pulls up. I picked it up, It turns out to be a Carcassi Model Number C120, 19 fret Classical in what I would call good condition.

Does anybody know much or anything about this brand???

I checked on Reverb.com with no information there.

I will be cleaning it up and restringing it over the next couple of days.

Thanks in advance

Regards

Anthony (Hong Kong)

[p]I've never heard of a Carcassi model guitar. Carcassi was a 19th century classical guitarist!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matteo_Carcassi

I searched & only found these links related to a C-120 model guitar.

Hope that helps! Enjoy the guitar!

Thanks Chris for putting in the effort and doing a good search, you would have reached different servers from me here in Hong Kong,

I don't think it's anything worth a lot of money, It seems they were Japanese built though, Its cleaning up real nice, I'm waiting on a couple of parts and I will have it up and running in a week or so.

Thanks again

Regards

Anthony
