Thank you Simon for your kind comment. I posted the price hoping for a quick sell but on the other hand, it is no great loss if it does not sell and I get to keep it as my back up guitar. And yes, a lot of people has told me this guitar would cost at a much higher price.simonm wrote:Hi Neil, looks lie a great instrument. Good luck with the sale. I have only heard good things about Cuong. If I were nearer I would love to see it. I am sure who ever buys it will be very happy. I half suspect that you would sell it quicker if you bumped the price up quite a bit. The low price has unfortunately got people mentioning cheap factory guitars in the thread which distracts potential buyers and moves the thread off on a tangent.
If you have a sound sample it would be great too.
Again good luck with the sale.
Really? I personally prefer a guitar without the fret extension, the traditional symmetry is more pleasing to me, and I have never personally come across any pieces that require it anyway (admittedly, there are many pieces I have never seen, but I think that there are more than enough pieces to keep me busy in my lifetime that can be played on 20 frets). A quick look at the classified ads here reveals that the vast majority of 21st-century-built instruments lack a 20th fret, and so you may be in the minority of those who cannot understand this phenomenon of not adding one. But, to each their own, I guess!ronjazz wrote:I'm very hard-pressed to understand any 21st-century builder not making a 20-fret extension, especially in so modern a guitar. That looks well-made, his reputation, so far, is quite good, and, unfortunately he's not alone. There are worthwhile pieces with high C, and transcriptions certainly can use it. It seems somehow incomplete.
