Is Mexico a possibility? Where do you live?

My vote goes to Andrea Tacchi. I tried his Bouchet Homage anno 2008 and it was amazing!
It was even better than the real thing, I would say. At least from my recent experience of tasting two old original Bouchet guitars.

Antonio Marin Montero guitars were based on the Bouchet plans.
He studied with him in the "70's and they built 2 or 3 guitars together.
There are used ones available.

Quite a many build Bouchet inspired.
But I have not yet seen a replica, an exact copy of some of his guitars (maybe I've missed something).
The problem is that very few luthiers have had Bouchets in their hands
(you can draw plans if you have possibility study one) and good plans
(level of GAL plans) are still yet to see.
I would like to see plans of Presti/Lagoya guitars,
maybe somebody does the work one day.
