I followed recently a 1997 Edmund Blochinger guitar (No 83 or 85 from the photos) that sold on e - b a y for US2025. Seller in Texas.
I would have paid far more than that but had a nagging doubt whether it was real or a scam. Interested to hear if anybody knows this was a real sale.
You tell us now?
Can't see the guitar in question anymore, I presume if you have an e - b a y account you can. Did the description show the seller knew what they had in terms of potential value?
Here’s what the ad said in full:
‘For sale is my 1997 Edmund Blochinger Classical Guitar I purchased in 1998 from Guitar Salon International. Its a very playable 648mm scale X 50mm nut, nice German Spruce Top, w/ Indian Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany Neck, French Polish Finish. Very solid construction and very nice tone. Its only flaw is the lower back panel may need to be reglued.
Edmunds Guitars are not cheap.This one was $7000.00 when I bought it, and others of his now start upwards of more than $15,000.00. Ill start bidding off at $2000.00 with the Buy it now at $4000.00.
Thanks for your interest and good luck bidding‘
