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 have always found that Juan Hernandez guitars play well above their price points.

The few that I have held and played always impress me and the tone sounds like it is produced by a far more expensive guitar

Good luck with your sale

Thank you. I've always been most impressed with it. I'm selling it because I've nearly finished building my own guitar and want to fund the next one...

Great make, ive had a spruce and cedar concierto and romance model and keep coming back to them.
I now have the luthier lattice on order, they are fantastic guitars , forget the factory factor, they are better/equal to many very expensive luthier built guitars.
