1957 one of a kind #no serial

This extraordinary one of a kind guitar, was made by Jacques Favino in 1957 for the then popular teenage singer Marie-José Neuville..carved solid spruce top..carved solid flamed maple back, three piece maple neck, round hole, with elevated fingerboard. conceived as a nylon string guitar, it projects as well as any classical guitar. on the inside, there is a long handwritten dedication by Jacques Favino.. great action and sound.. this one is a piece of French History. I wish I also had the guitar in this photo..!! her recording contract stipulated that she was forbidden to cut off her braids..She had to continue projecting the image of a teenager..way past that time..
