I bought this guitar barely used in 2010 from Larry Darnell. It is a lovely sounding guitar to me and is very easy to play. I kept it out on a stand much of the time so I would play it more and it is in less than pristine cosmetic condition as a result.

The 2 cracks went through the top and were professionally repaired by Jed Germond. He was one of the repair people that did repairs for The Podium guitar shop. They are noticeable to me looking at it but no one else besides my teacher has noticed them. I tried to photograph it so you could see them.

I looked at it one day and the bridge had pulled off. I suspect it had been coming off for a while because the guitar sounded better following the repair, again professionally done by Jed. There are a few other dings especially the back side of the lower bout. I think this is spot I occasionally knock the guitar against my music stand when I'm picking it up.

Because of the condition of the guitar I'm not comfortable shipping it sight unseen. I would prefer to sell it locally.

I have enjoyed this guitar very much. I'm selling it because I recently purchased another New World Player but in spruce in the 615mm size and am just playing that one (and it's staying in its case!).

It comes with the original hard case.

I have some recordings on the Delcamp website but I can't be certain if I recorded them on the Player or the Almansa I owned at the same time. You can search "Murmures (Whispersings) by Maria Linnemann" by Amy Lake for a recording on this guitar on youtube using my little Sanyo recorder. I spelled "Whispersings" wrong in my title so it's easier to find. The thumbnail photo is of a bunch of yellow flowers.
