There was a cuban guy playing who was so talented that I just had to stop and listen to him instead.
The guitar looks very unique and I was told it has a lattice type structure under a section of the soundboard. It weighed a ton as well, very heavy construction.

The oval of membrane is made from the same piece of wood, but very thin. I can't imagine the exact thickness, but it's transparency comparable to 3 sheets of plain paper.

My lattice guitars are thinned to just under a 1mm around the edges. Anything under .8mm and you get structural issues.

I briefly played two of them (not at te same time, without comparing to a reference guitar in good conditions). One was homogeneous and seemed projecting, sustaining quite well, with a nice dynamic range. The other one was much less homogeneous (too obvious differently sounding notes - not only one wolf note...).
The tone colour wasn't what most players could call beautiful, but most player should then agree too that other - traditionnally buit - guitars dont have a beautiful tone colour.
The first comparable traditional guitars which came to my mind were Paco Santiago Marín's, somehow among the best I know.
Nevertheless, I would need a full comparison session to evaluate them with more accuracy.
