New to the forum...been a musician for 35 years...currently performing contemporary jazz..I need help to identify and find a appraiser for this classical guitar. It was owned by a 90 year old family member who passed and was purchased in New York 60-70 years ago. It has a gold label that has this:

Manuel Velazquez
Fabricantes de Guitarras
Calidad Superior
New York City, N Y

It has no date, model number etc.
I am still working on adding files as my size is still to big
Spoke with Beverly Maher at the Guitar Salon and based on first look she say it could be an early “rough one” before he developed his best model maybe from the late 40’s or early 50’s also could have been made by Titi Amadeo or? Anyway trying to contact those in the know.
In the meantime...I will be trying to downsize the pics
