Failure to respect these conditions will result in the removal of the ads and in flagrant cases the account of the member may be removed without warning.
Do not give your phone number or your email address except via private message.

Please set out your ad in the following format:

COUNTRY price(as 5 characters) Luthier model wood(soundboard) year, City/Town-of-sale
For example:
LK $..200 Yamaha G70A spruce 1969, Colombo
($..200 = $200), dots are inserted to bring all prices to 5 characters, allowing the use of an ascending sort by subject via the sort menu at the bottom of the page to display ads in order of country and price.
Country codes may be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1
Capital letters are restricted to the initial letters of proper names.

Ads are moved to the archives as soon as the guitar is sold, or when they have had no response for more than one year. A message can be edited by its author for the first 21 days after posting, after which it is necessary to ask a moderator to make any changes.

Please do not denigrate a guitar for sale or the luthier who made it. Moderators will remove such messages. Whether or not the sale should proceed is entirely up to the parties involved.

Members who buy an instrument unseen do so at their own risk and should exercise due caution. For added security, it is advisable to use a licensed online escrow service (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escrow).

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) means that some materials used in guitars, although formerly allowed, may now require permits or be illegal to sell across national borders, or even locally in some places. It is the responsibility of the buyer and seller to ensure that the sale complies with all applicable laws in their respective countries.

SE €.1200 Masaki Sakurai No.10 spruce 1979, Malmö - Sweden

Post by rinneby » Wed Dec 06, 2017 10:35 am

- Luthier: Masaki Sakurai
- Year of construction: 1979
- Scale length: 650 mm
- Nut width: 52 mm
- Action 4/3 mm
- Top: Solid Spruce
- Back / Sides: Solid Indian Rosewood
- Fingerboard: Ebony
- Condition: Good
- Price: 1200 Euro, including case + shipping (EU only)
- Location: Sweden / Malmö

An excellent guitar hand made by Masaki Sakurai in 1979, no cracks or repairs and easy playability. A few scratches on the back and a ding behind the neck. Everything is original, including the tuners.

Mr. Masaki Sakurai is the nephew of the greatest luthier from Japan, Masaru Kohno, with whom he worked with, and learned the craft of guitar making. Although clearly influenced by his uncle, Sakurai also infuses his own personality into his guitars. The double ebony reinforcing strips in the back of the neck allow for a very accurate setup.

Less than US$1500? Seriously good buy. Elsewhere on this forum right now (in another thread) somebody is pontificating what guitar is best for $2k. I know the answer, import this!
