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.

Maybe ask your wife nicely if you could have just one more guitar, you could help solve the problem! Good chance of success if you pick up a nice present for her this weekend.

Haha, Simon. You know quite well, that she would not be amused at all. Besides I have hardly enough time to play two excellent guitars. A third one would only be a S. Magennis guitar one day.

But honestly I have read so much enthusiastic reports about her guitars that I am really surprised to see no delcamper being eager to own one.

Hi,

I'm the owner of the other de Jonge for sale on this forum.

I think that classical guitars sell slowly, on here, and on that famous auction site. I don't think it is a function of the maker as much as an indication that the number of classical players is rather small compared to the world of electric and acoustic steel instruments. I see $1000 instruments not sell, so I don't think it is that much of a function of price, although, of course, it takes longer to sell a $6000 instrument than it does a $1000 instrument.

Besides, you Delcampers already own multiple instruments, in many cases. ;) I wish Delcamp would do more to advertise and bring in classical players, but I guess that won't happen. I've talked to world class players who have never heard of this site. I think a lot of amateur players have never heard of Delcamp either. That does not make it easy to sell our guitars.

Those are my thoughts, anyway.

Well, I was lucky enough to sell two guitars here on Delcamp. Its luck a lot of the time, you put a guitar up, someone is interested, happens to see it, boom, sold.

The good thing is we are sort of self-policed here, its unlikely someone is going to sell you a guitar that isn't what they say it is, but on the auction site, its very much caveat emptor.

Hello
Sorry to have vanished - life, etc. The guitar is still unaccountably available. It's on consignment at the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Store.
