Default "La Madrilena" Guitar?

I was wondering if you could help me identify a guitar I purchased used last year. The label says “Guitarras Finas”, “La Madrilena”, with a manufacture date in Mexico of 1964, model 10. It’s the same scale as a classical, but a bit narrower in the body. Definitely a laminate top (with two different wood patterns, curiously) and sides. Have you ever heard of this manufacturer? I can’t decide if it’s a classical or flamenco guitar. It’s very lightly built, with a pronounced bass sound.

It means "fine guitar. "the best guitar" etc. La Madrilina is in Totolan, central-western state of Jalisco. Probably where it was made. If it is Flamenco it will probably be real light with Cypress sides and back
