Finally got round to a demo video, some snippets of pieces to show the various aspects of the guitar.

Excellent playing, as usual. I like the snippets approach. Best of luck with the sale.

Thanks Gary. Certainly if the other videos are representative then it's a very nice sounding guitar at this price point.

I'd say the neck is on the slim side, with VERY easy action.

I bought a cedar Adalid Hopf Artista membrane from Gary Macleod last year for a comparable price, it is at present my favourite guitar, together with a Gibson Custom L5 ( I have 38 guitars). At this price, it can hardly be beaten. Moreover, rumour goes that it is identical to the Hopf Artista membrane, which sells at the expected luthier rate.
