What brand and style of guitar do you use for Latin music? What brands or luthiers do you recommend?

It might be fun to see what guitars everyone owns or plays.I play a guitar built by Francisco Navarro Garcia, of Mexico.  It is from the "Special Grand Concert Series" and is known as the "Smallman" model.  This guitar was built with an armrest to help protect the finish, and, I believe, to prevent the forearm from damping the sound board.For Latin-flavored music, it is far better than any guitar I have ever owned.  It makes me sound better than I actually am.  My hope is to eventually develop…See More

James,
Welcome to the Acoustic Newb group. I'm a little confused about how long you've been playing ("Less than 1 year, More than 30years"?, but it doesn't really matter as we have people from all skill levels in the group and we learn from each other. As I like to say, there's no deep end to our pool, so jump in wherever you like.
Walt
