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.

On 8 February 2016 I went to Madrid in person especially to buy this guitar at Guitarras de Luthier (because it was much cheaper there than elsewhere and I felt unsure about purchasing it online) after my teacher told me I needed a new instrument to further develop (I was in third grade evening classes then). And she was right! Vanessa made me fall in love deeply with classical guitar. The instrument motivated me to practice much more and more passionately.

Vanessa is a very versatile instrument. It's a loud guitar but with a traditional cedar character. Playing softly on it is a joy because there's such a range. It offers a big contrast between ponticello and tasto. And sounds radically different depending on the strings.

There's a few scratches on the back, mostly caused by a guitar stand and a little dent under the bridge caused by a snapping string. But other than that the guitar is in great shape and a joy to play.

I still very much love this guitar but I promised myself not to start collecting guitars and I'm currently favoring a smaller scale spruce top instrument. So I hope Vanessa finds a new lover who can honor her beauty (and in whom she can stimulate the love she did in me).

Comes with a hard plastic case.
