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.

This guitar is totally lovable. The rosette is a close replica of the original. The original FE 5 had a 4 piece back of BRW. The back and wood on this is full of sparkle and 3D holographics.

Let me know if you have questions or ideas to discuss.
I rarely offer a guitar here, although I am proud to offer this one here. There are several members here that do have my instruments...
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

I located a sound file of this guitar. It's me playing some of Sor's Andante Largo...

PS.
A member asked whether the guitar really sounds that good. The recording is raw. No reverb or other effects.

FHC,
Thanks for the comment and wishing good luck.
I frequent Planet Earth, perhaps we'll meet up when I visit that part of the solar system.
