I've got my first reasonable guitar when I was 18 which was an instrument with a label fitted inside: L. Arostegui Granados - Madrid. I have been playing it for a couple of years but then I stopped playing at all. After some twenty years of retirement I just started playing again on the same instrument. I wonder what guitar is it at all, since I haven't got any information about the constructor although I still love this instrument. If anybody knows anything about this make please inform me! Thanks.

Thanks T-L for this info. This is the only thing I had. I wanted to know a bit more about the master and his instruments. So if there is anybody who can supply me with something else please share with me.
