I took this guitar in part exchange for a more expensive guitar that I was selling on this board a couple of months back. A very good friend of mine has a Koa Yulong Guo so I know how good these guitars are, so I was happy to take it in part exchange. I’ve really enjoyed playing it this last while but it’s time for me to move it on as I never intended to keep it.
It’s a 2013 Chamber Concert with a cedar doubletop. Details can be found here:
It’s a professional quality guitar – the London Guitar Studio sells many of these to students at the Royal Academy, who part with their traditionally built guitars for them: The Guo is very responsive, loud and has great clarity and separation. An excellent performing instrument and fine for home playing for those of us who wish to progress to a better instrument at a reasonable price.
It had a small string burn just behind the high E string at the bridge when I got it and I’ve had David Merrin (who looks after the Granary Guitars collection) repair this by filling and re-laquering; see pic. David has also given the guitar a make-over and adjusted the saddle etc. so that it plays perfectly without buzzes etc. Action is 2.5mm top E and 3.5mm low E at the 12th fret. Comes with the original case as pictured.
I’m after £1750 for this. These are currently £2995GBP at the London Guitar Studio (4600 USD on the Guo homepage) so save yourself a whole lot of cash.
Please PM me if you’d like to see it.
