​1975 Ignacio Fleta 

On behalf of my company Nugent Guitars Ltd, I am very pleased and privileged to offer a Research & Valuation service world-wide.

Through the passion I have for the classical guitars and it's luthiers, I have for many years studied and travelled in search of guitar information and knowledge...

I do not believe there can be such title as "expert" in this field, as the search for new information continues daily and is, in my opinion, infinite. However, I do possess a very comprehensive knowledge in this subject area and I am expert enough to know how to research and discover information which is not readily available to me.

I have particular fondness and interest in the classical guitars from Spain throughout the 19th & 20th Century.

I have provided this service for many clients over the years, which has on all occasions proved successful.

Please contact me direct if you would like to discuss research, or in fact need a valuation of your guitar/s.

Researching guitars takes time, patience and finance. 

I do not set a fee for this service, as I believe all research cases and valuations should be taken on a case by case basis. But I do kindly ask that on the completion of any service consideration is given to  making a donation of any amount to Nugent Guitars (reference: research). All donations will be gratefully received and, as has been done in the past, be used in the further research of the classical guitar and it's luthiers, so this information may continue to be successfully shared with our world community.

The donation is not obligatory..it is voluntary.

Thank you

Tony J. Nugent
