For sell my interesting concert guitar built by the luthier René Baarslag. He worked with Antonio Marin Montero in Granada but also with Robert Bouchet in France. Today he lives in Granada, where he has set up his own workshop. He is world-wide known for his traditionally built guitars and their incredible volume, balance, elasticity and sustain.The current price of this guitar is around 6000 euros. Model of 15 frets up to the box. 24 frets at 1st string. Very powerful sound, with body, very clear, a lot of projection in the auditorium. Honestly It seems that sound has reverb. A very comfortable instrument to play. A hardcase /humicase included.
650 mm (scale)
52 mm (nut)
Aquila Sugar Normal Tension (strings)
Please see the video with a friend playing the guitar.

Sounds awesome! What's with the fret right up against the nut? Have never seen that before.

It's a Zero fret Wombosi.The strings rest atop the zero fret, which is higher than the other frets. It is claimed that with a zero fret, the sound of an open string more closely approximates the sound of a fretted string as compared to the open string sound on a guitar with no zero fret.
I hope this information can help ;)

Hi Jon!
The guitar has a standard action as photos shows on 12th fret(4mm basses/ 3mm trebles): Remember that top stars on 15th fret.
Warm Regards
