As the soundsample proves, Canada is the home of some outstanding luthiers. Good luck with the sale. Given the sound quality the price is a bargain.

Are you interested in any trades for things? Otherwise if it's still around in about a month I'd love to get at it.

It's a very fine looking and sounding instrument. Is the price in US $ or Can $ - also are there any restrictions I'm exporting instruments from Canada ?

Hi, the price is in Canadian dollars.

There are no restrictions I can think of with exporting this guitar to Australia. If you're interested, feel free to send me a private message and I can get in touch with Jeff Sigurdson because I'm sure he'd be able to answer any of our questions.

Thanks,
Gord

This looks like an amazing deal at $5k Canadian. That comes up to around only $3900 USD. The Canadian dollar seems to be climbing so someone should probably take advantage of the favorable exchange rate while they still can. Jeff Sigurdson makes really great guitars
