Picador guitars were relabelled Martin or Sigma acoustic guitars - that failed cosmetic quality control checks. Underneath the Picador headstock label is typically the Sigma or Martin logo. C.F. Martin first trademarked Picador brand and logo in 1974, but the trademark expired in 1996.

Picador History?

I purchased a new Picador B24380 in 1982.  It remains a wonderful guitar.  The parent brand is listed on this sight as Sigma, but my understanding is that it was a trademark of the C. F. Martin Co..  I wish someone was able to clarify the history of this brand.
