US $.1200 Loriente Clarita spruce 2009, Indianapolis, IN - Sold

Post by sayar » Mon Dec 12, 2016 12:29 am

Loriente Clarita - Made in Spain
2009
650mm scale - 52mm nut
Finish: Lacquer
Top: Solid spruce
Back/sides: Solid Indian Rosewood
Fingerboard: Ebony
Neck has truss rod
Action at 12th fret: 1st string 2.7 mm, 6th string 3.3 mm
Sound: well balanced
Condition: Excellent, kept in optimal temperature/humidity
Price: 1200 USD
Available for viewing/trial
Location: Carmel, IN
The guitar comes with the original HumiCase Protégé.

I am selling it because I have bought a more expensive luthier-built guitar.

This guitar has a very balanced sound, decent intonation, and no buzzing. The playability was very good and I was very satisfied; I had a luthier adjust the neck, and he brought the action down a little which made the playability super-excellent!

It is a perfect choice for an intermediate-level player in my opinion, but serious beginners will find it a great guitar and an investment for years to come, and advanced players may find it a good instrument too. The sound has good projection for a large room or small salon.

I always thought the guitar had no scratches because it looked in perfect shape, but gave it a very meticulous inspection before placing it on sale, and surprisingly found a few very small blemishes: couple of minute superficial string snaps behind the bridge, and one very superficial ding on the top. These are so small that are hard to find, I had to take multiple pictures in different light angles to finally catch them.

I will ship with ground FedEx and insurance. For shipping inside the contiguous United States, I ask the buyer to pay $50 and I will pay the rest. Outside the contiguous United States, depending on the shipping cost we will have to negotiate.

Thank you for visiting and Happy CG playing!

Would it be possible to get some sound samples of this guitar?

I did a quick recording tonight and uploaded to YouTube. I should say this was my very first recording! Also my "a" finger nail is broken, so played it without nail.

BTW, I'm sorry for the pictures this way, for some reason the website rotated them all after upload and did not let me correct them!

Thank you

I am the happy owner of an Antonio Loriente Clarita Spruce which I bought from Gryphon Stringed Instruments back in 2008. I paid 1660 USD case and shipping costs to Norway included. This was a good buy back then. It is a wonderful instrument, and I do think this offer from sayar is a real bargain.

The newer Loriente models with the blue label have a truss rod.

He adjusted the truss rod.
The playability was very good before the adjustment but now it is excellent.
