Spanish guitar

My mother gave this to me in 2007, as she said she never plays it and needs the space! I have very little information on this guitar, other than that it is genuinely Spanish, probably dates from the 1970s, really needs restringing...

 

...and has a proud place in my musical history, as on the 4th March 1987 I sat down with a Mick Abrahams tutor record and this instrument, and learned my very first guitar chords.

 

I'm definitely going to record something with this one day.

 

(Update (March 2008)): Since I wrote the above notes, I have used this guitar on two recordings: backing tracks for my wife's musical activity sessions for children ("Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "I Can Sing A Rainbow"). It records nicely, though I don't think I've got the EQ quite right yet when mixing.
