--Year of Construction: 11/2017
--Scale Length: 650mm
--Top: Englemann Spruce
--Back/Sides: Bubinga
--Fingerboard/Bridge: Indian Rosewood
--Sound: Deep Strong Bass
--Condition: Brand New
--Price: $.3000
--Viewing/Trial Possible: May be viewed in East Providence, RI, or may be shipped out at the interested party's expense
--Location: East Providence, RI

Completed on 11/10/17, from a 43 Hauser Plantilla, this guitar features a Santos Hernandez style rosette, with matching back strip, purflings,
bottom strip, and headpiece strip. Also, the fingerboard is slightly elevated.
This guitar is noticeably loud with strong bass, and good resonance, while still maintaining distinct tone separation and quality. No grain filler was used on the back and sides, as on this one I wanted to maintain-- and feature--the raw quality of the Bubinga wood species.
The headstock is carved with a new design, and the guitar is the first to feature it. Finally, this guitar is completely French Polished. I give a 3 day trial 100% money back offer.

At that price, it would be hard to pass up to try it out! Good luck on the sale. I wish I was looking for a guitar right now!

I sure wish I could either play it or hear it a little more clearly. If I could, I might be interested. But I'm ALL the way down in Louisiana.
