I tried to post some pictures, but was unable to figure out how to do it. I have mastered "on-off" in the tech field.

I have sent private message to the seller for many days but receive no response.

Is the guitar still for sale?

Here are some photos the seller emailed to me, so I can help post them.
They didn't go through as regular post attachments. Perhaps they are too large...???

Anyways, I uploaded them on my own web space and I am sharing them from there.
Once the guitar sells, I will delete them from there.

Looks like a very nice guitar! :)
Shouldn't bee too hard to sell!

Yes it is a lovely looking guitar, not so keen on sound ports however. Just my opinion. A buyer could have a "soundport cover" made I guess.

As a proud owner of the new 2015 Joshia de Jonge guitar, i can say without any hesitation that Joshia guitar is really a superb instrument in all aspect. It has an extremely fast response yet with long sustain, and thick fat juicy tone.
It is faaaarrrrr better than a 2015 Dominique Field (triple the price than Joshia) that i also manage to got recently. Better power, much better craftmanship, much better sustain, much wider tonal range.
It is just a fabulous instrument..

Sorry to the OP, and I do hope you sell your lovely guitar, but I do find it rather perplexing that a claim would surface of 'much better craftsmanship' than Dominique Field. I suspect you are reflecting aural and aesthetic preferences in your comment. Field displays craftsmanship of the absolute highest order.

I can claim my statement above without any hesitation. Please check your PM. I prefer not to explain it publicly.

I trust Ivan's judgement. Knowing him over the years, I am quite certain that he has no hidden agenda and has seen a few great guitars.
