Not the only guity one! Sabicas and Paco de Lucía both signed valuable guitars on the soundboard and there is one maker in Madrid who also does this more discreetly, in his case to show that his guitars are not made by another family member with the same name with whom he is in competition.

Bad taste but maybe some find it charming....

Should explain that the famous design of the head is a mark of this family and both Madrid makers use it.
