I offer a very nice sounding cedar/EIR guitar, built by the French luthier Alain Raifort in Tours. Usual 65/52 sice, fitted with Gotoh Premium tuners. The instrument has been played for a long time by the French guitarist Damien Lancelle. He played it at the 2011 GFA competition where he finished third in the ranking. I am the second owner.

This cedar guitar is traditionally braced and has a warm, quite powerful, but transparent voice. It's extremely easy to play. The Belgian master luthier Karel Dedain recently restored the instrument thoroughly. It is now fitted with new frets and has a new French polish. Apart from some nail marks at the soundhole which are still visible, the appearance of the guitar is absolutely shining.
The guitar is based in Brussels/Belgium. Visitors eager to play the instrument are welcome.
