Ads are moved to the archives as soon as the guitar is sold. Ads that have had no response for more than one year will be moved to the archives. 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.

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.

Hello!

After the beginning of 2017 i have decided to try different woods to work with in my classical guitars. This one was the first test of a non rosewood guitar.

Obviously I´m still working with rosewoods but I believe in the future, like what happened with Brazilian Rosewood, it will be difficult to continue to work with it. For instance it will be more and more expensive and the players that play around the world will have to renew paperwork (CITES) every 3 years.

If you have any interested or would like more info, test it or any question please contact me i will be very pleased to answer .

:merci:

Good work.
