Please do not denigrate a guitar for sale or the luthier who made it. Moderators will remove such messages. Whether or not the sale should proceed is entirely up to the parties involved.

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.

Classical / Stephen Hill
2009
650mm scale length
Cedar Top - lattice braced
Madagascan back and sides
Ebony fingerboard
Schertler Tuners
Shellac French Polish
Powerful, Loud, very good projection, sweet clear trebles and wonderful deep balanced bass.
£2995
Viewing and trial available in Warrington, UK.

This guitar is structurally in excellent condition with wonderful low action. The price is reduced as the guitar has many scratches and a couple of light dints. If the aesthetics bother you then you it will need a complete polish removal, some cleaning of the scratches etc and a new polish. If this guitar is polished then you will have a great guitar for nearly half the price of new.

Enquiries made and cost to have the guitar stripped, tidied and re-polished is between £325.00 - £400.00 depending on luthier and location, so a wonderful opportunity to acquire and own a beautiful Stephen Hill 1a concert guitar at a fraction of the cost.
