I don't live too far away, and would love to meet up with the seller to play this fine guitar.

It's just a matter of making the time.

I'll report back if I can ever get to it.
What can this strange device be?
When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
It's got wires that vibrate and give music
What can this thing be that I found?

Some posts have been split off from this thread as it was being pulled off-topic. They will hopefully soon re-appear in a new thread.

I purchased a Cervantes from fitness1 off this forum and had a really great experience with him and getting the guitar. The guitar was better than he had described and arrived without any issues due to the great packaging.

I'm very tempted by this guitar myself!

Thanks for the kind comments Paul....

I've dropped this one last time - another 150.00 to 3650.00. I'd like to ship before the cold sets in, but if I can't get that I may hold it until spring.

Here's a clip I recorded quickly today (11/13) - turn the volume slider up on the Box player before listening.

Paul - just sent you a PM, but it didn't appear to go through. Let me know if it did.

Thanks - actually, except for the last little bit, that's all just "noodling" that I've conjured up over the years.

Thanks Simon....

I've dropped this about as low as I'm going to go - would like to ship it tomorrow. If you are interested and "close" (please be reasonable) send me a PM.
