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.

Nice guitar and sound, congrats! Thanks also for the video. The only thing I always hate to see is when players do not protect their right arms on the guitar, especially with French polish and especially with a guitar you don´t own. You will clearly see this on the polish later.

Cheers
Peter

Hello Douglass, gorgeous guitar! Any technical reason for the central rosewood panel in the back? Or is it only for aesthetics?
Thanks James. In theory it has an impact on the sound since it changes the mass and stiffness of the back compared to all maple - makes it a bit more rosewoody. But in reality I'm not sure I can hear a difference.

Thank you Peter. This guitar has been finished for a few months so the polish is not soft any more and can be played for some time without printing. But you are right, as a rule if you are diligent about protecting the French polish it can last for many years before needing a touch up.
