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.

2012 Martin Blackwell
650 scale
Spruce double top
Madagascar sides and back
Fan braced
Build in Arm rest
Near mint condition

Beautiful instrument that is super strong quick and powerful. The trebles sustain like carbon yet with nylon strings. Basses quite deep with a lot of character. Body resonance at F. Has wonderful clarity for Bach yet plenty of power and bite for villa lobos or lyrical for romantic music.

If interested PM me and I will text or email nice pics. Very handsome instrument.

He is very underrated IMO. This guitar sounds even better out front than in your lap. great separation of the notes. I would be keeping and playing her often if I could play.

Now that's a beautiful set of Madagascar RW. I've heard really great things about Martin's guitars. Whoever snatches this one gets a guitar that is already broken in, from a trusted seller who can confirm its sound quality, skips the long wait period, and saves money compared to buying brand new.

Just wanted to mention that I purchased Jim's Andreas Kirschner guitar and, throughout that process, he was incredibly responsive and helpful. The guitar came safely packed and was just as described when it arrived. It was a very pleasant experience and a wonderful guitar. I would certainly buy from him again and can easily recommend him to others.
