I`d say Voorman`s - for some vague reasons:
a) why should he take all this stuff to John to have a photo taken?
b) I don`t recognize this room as being in one of John`s places (though I don`t claim I know all of John`s rooms)
Kenwoodlennon might be able to answer the room question: http://kenwoodlennon.blogspot.com/

I think there is a bit about this guitar in Voorman´s book.

Hello Ken,

Thank you very much for your reply...

I`d say Voorman`s - for some vague reasons...

Excellent...

This confirms what Voormann himself told me time ago: they used to change guitars amongst themselves by then...

...I think there is a bit about this guitar in Voorman´s book.

Aha... This is very interesting.

Unfirtunately, I don't have a copy of that book. What does he say about this guitar??

Best!! ;)

Well, I guess I was wrong.
I read this books quite a while ago and some parts again just recently - now I browsed through it in search for guitar-stories, two caught my attention:
- George borrowed one of his first Gretsch`s to Klaus to keep as long as he wants
- Klaus visits John (around the time of the composing of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" and while he waits for John he grabs one of his guitars and plays a bit.
But I couldn`t find anything about John giving the spanish guitar to Klaus.

Hello Ken,

Thanks A LOT for your help!! ;)

Anyway, it's very interesting to see Lennon's Spanish guitar at Voormann's (=London??) flat by..., early 1967?

Best!! ;)

Is it a mystery now that the Monthly mentions Madrid as well?
