Ads are moved to the archives as soon as the guitar is sold, or when they have had no response for more than one year. 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.

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.

I am not a professional guitar player and would like to pass it on to someone who will be able to use it to it's full potential. This guitar comes with a standard travel case. A video of this guitar played by it's previous owner can be found by searching YouTube video: 4aE6_Q67YvI

It has a sound hole on side and wooden cover piece is included.

I can also possibly include the wooden display case (but would prefer not to ship it.) It's one of the cases seen in the background of many of the Guitar Salon International videos. They sold some a few years ago when remodeling their studios.

Email joannephillips99@gmail.com for additional photos, inquiries, offers or to arrange to play guitar.

If you spent as much time cooking as you did playing guitar, you'd be a master chef! That was how my husband subtly told me he hates my guitar. His justification - music is isolating - I go to another room to practice (where it's quiet), my participation in a guitar orchestra is too time consuming, and lessons are expensive (you get what you pay for.) Now I've discovered that there's a small crack in the soundboard. Well, I live close to Connor's workshop, so off she goes today. I'm hoping for a quick return and then she'll be ready again for sale, hopefully going to a home without so much musical controversy.

If you spent as much time cooking
It's a treat to have such a lovely instrument (I'm a Connor fan).

But then again, perhaps your husband could practice cooking while you practice guitar, and *he* could be the master chef in the household.

Best wishes... maybe it's the guitar you should be keeping...

That's pretty harsh...
