Originally I bought a similar model 2007 from a music stall in Singapore in mid 2011 for my son to celebrate his 21st birthday. I brought that guitar to a luthier in Singapore for a set-up. During that process, the luthier highlighted to me that there was a repaired crack reinforced with 3 cleats below the top. The shop agreed to a replacement and it was only till early 2013 that the replacement guitar which is this guitar was replaced. By that time, my son has lost interest in classical guitar and has developed an interest in electrical guitar.

The original wooden ball on the headstock has been replaced with a genuine Japanese cultured pearl. Since early 2013, the guitar has been left in the case almost untouched and the case has been collecting dust in my store.

This guitar is loud, has plenty of overtones and has very good projection. It has a powerful bass and crystal clear treble with very balance mid range. The tone is very colourful and volume will definitely improve over time as this is a spruce top model and it has not been played.

It is flawless and is as good or may be even better than any of the same model that you will find in a music/guitar store. I felt it is a pity to let it sit in my store when it can be better used at a concert recital. A new one currently sells for over US$4000.

Feel free to request for more photos should you require them.

Return is acceptable but Buyer pays for shipping both ways and condition returned has to be as per original without any damage, dent or scratch.
