Hello! I have this classical guitar I got from my dad a few years ago and am thinking about maybe selling it. But, I can't find any information on it at all. It's a Diamond, model G200. Does anyone know anything about these?

Hi Lizard King. Welcome to the Forum. Do you have any pics? Does it say "Diamond, model G200" on a paper label in the soundhole or is it a combination of it being on the headstock and paper label? Is the country of origin also specified?

The opening post describes the guitar as being a classical guitar, not a steel-string model.

The tag inside the guitar just says: Diamond fine fretted instruments. Then has the serial #1419. Don't see a country of origin anywhere.

It looks like when Pennino ceased to be they let the trademark go. I think by law that a foreign made product would have to be marked with the country of origin (though it may have just been a sticker).

The early eighties -were kinda wierd their were guitar companies popping up all over the place, most were orient based ( probably many names came from the same factory )-i had a HEIT from about that time era that was Chinese or Japanese ( came from Brand Names ) Im not an expert on this but I remember the eighties - you couldnt throw a rock and not hit one.

My brother had a Kasuga guitar- the only one ive ever seen -from about that time era as well-- looks alot like your diamond
