Welcome to the forum. I'd recommend looking at Mercado Livre, the equivalent of eBay in Brazil:
You have to understand Portuguese in order to navigate the site. You also have a good chance of finding someone with a basic knowledge of English selling the guitar, but don't take that for granted.
What's so special about the Savona SN20?

Hi everyone. I also have a Savona classical that I'd like information about if possible. I just acquired a Savona AWN 20, also made in Brazil. Mine seems to have some different woods than what Bok Choy described for his SN 20. The neck and head stock are solid wood rather than laminated. I am not a wood expert but I believe the back and sides of the body are rosewood and the fretboard certainly is rosewood. Perhaps someone here could confirm or refute that if I were to post some pictures? The top is a beautiful light-grained wood, but what it is I have no idea. It could be spruce, but I'm just not sure. The grain doesn't seem tight enough for spruce. No idea what wood the neck is made of.
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.
