2002 Randy Reynolds Grand Legacy, double top
640mm scale length
52mm nut width
Double-top in hazelfichte spruce
Radial bracing
Moderately elevated fretboard
Honduran rosewood back and sides
Ebony fingerboard
Ebony headplate
Rodgers tuners with black MOP buttons
Accord case
Colorado Case cover
The guitar is in Baton Rouge LA
$4800 shipped in the lower 48. Add shipping for outside the CONUS.
Price drop to $3800

My playing has fallen off in recent years, so I am keeping my 2 "lesser" guitars, and selling my two concert instruments.
Randy was an early innovator in double-top guitars. I think he got it right. The guitar has a rich, full tone. The high E is strong all the way up the neck. The blend of all registers is wonderful. As you might expect with this design, it is a cannon, but with a sweet voice. The guitar is amazingly easy to play. Though the nut width and string spacing a standard, and identical to other guitars I've measured, everything seems closer and easier to reach on this guitar. The workmanship is beautiful and meticulous. The finish is French polish that is remarkably durable. Other than very light marks, the only fault is light dulling at the arm contact spot.

The guitar will ship in a custom fitted Accord case (which bears some travel scuffs) and a custom made Colorado Case cover.

I will offer a 5 day trial period. You will bear the return shipping costs. If there is no damage I will give a complete refund.

It works! Sorry for the crummy photo quality. There are actually a few shots of this guitar on Randy's website.
