US $.3700 Andy Culpepper cedar 2017, Ithaca, NY - Sold

Post by Andy Culpepper » Sun Feb 05, 2017 1:32 am

Hi all,
I'm listing this guitar now although it won't be finished until the end of February. You can reserve it now and get your choice of tuning machines. In the pictures below the guitar has just a couple coats of shellac. I have strung it up without finish and it's very good. I tried something new with the extra side reinforcements as you can see in the picture. I was thinking about trying laminated sides and decided to go with this first. I felt that my guitars were losing some energy to side vibration and I have to say I really like the result on this one. It's very focused and projects well with good sustain.

Guitar is finished.
Here is a sound clip. Please forgive my playing, just noodling. No reverb or anything on the sound:

That was a quick sell...you didn´t have much time to enjoy your new built ... I guess that is the luthier´s fate ...nice guitar anyway, beautiful and a nice sound.Congrats to the buyer (and the builder)!

Hi,
I couldn't resist this one, as I have followed all the other sales here and the one at GSI.
Andy has got it going. The sound of this guitar is really up there with my Cedar Daily and that's saying a lot for a two week old guitar! The astectics and workmanship is first class. At this price point I would not hold back.....and Andy is terrific to deal with,
Ron
