-Conclusion:
Person claims to be in Spain, but uses pictures and name of an italian guy. It is unclear if the gmail account and google+ profile he uses is hacked.
-Person tries to sell me a guitar that he does not own. Pictures he sent is from a US ebay auction and the guitar serial number is the same.
-He uses Caixa as a bank, and apparently this is often used by scammers for whatever reason. You do not need to live in Spain to open an account with Caixa.

Definitely a scam. Origin unknown.
