Welcome to the forum. The Brazilian rosewood is hardly the reason your guitar is sounding powerful and resonating, as that wood usually contributes more to the sound quality and projection than to volume. Those factory-made guitars can vary a lot, and some of them can be quite good.
Pictures would certainly help identify the woods. Close-up pictures will be more than desirable.

Once you upload each picture, the web site will give a "forum code" or something like:

No idea about the top, though.

I came across another forum where one guy said these could be worth as much as $2000-$2500 because of the rare woods. I know this one does sound very powerful and full compared to many other classicals I've played, probably because of the Brazilian rosewood. Kind of interesting given the small body.
Has anyone learned any more about these since the last post? If so, wonder what the fundamental differences are between the SN 20 and the AWN 20? Thanks in advance everyone.
Hi! I've had my Savona AWN 20 for about ten years. It was sold to me buy a workmate who studied beside Earl Klugh. He told me the guitar lessons happened in the 1960's. He sold it to me in 1998 for $40! I can't find any info on this guitar either.
Everyone who plays it loves it. Many wanted to buy it. It's in great condition. Also have the original case that came with. I would love to know more about it.

I have found no additional information about mine since I posted in this forum. I continue to play it and and absolutly love the tone and projection. If you learn more about the one you have, please post your findings to this thread. Good luck!!
