That is one beautiful guitar. Especially the back - wow!
I find that is often the case. Spruce and cedar are great woods for sound boards, but they're not beautiful woods, in fact, the less figure, the better. My Goya has a spruce front that looks fine, but the back of flamed maple is lovely. My D-21 has a lovely Brazilian back and sides. My dulcimer has a lovely rosewood back and sides. I often want to show off the back of my instrument so people can see how beautiful it is.

Who's a silly sausage then. Put a new set of Nylon strings on the Classical Guitar, just about a week ago, the strings are just starting to settle in nicely, and hold there tuning, but what is this, a little length of spare string, hanging from the fifth string, I'll get me nail clippers, and tidy it up, LOUD TWANG, whoops, I have only gone and cut through the main fifth string. So put another new set of strings on, it's all good practice. 😀
