That's what I sold mine for about the same time - it was a bargain for the buyer, despite it having it a few scratches here and there.
When I bought the guitar new in 1996, it stood up to many other luthier guitars that were priced perhaps 30% -50% more expensive.
You won't go wrong with a 1A, but $3500 is definitely too much
Does anybody know if the AB models (higher that the 1As) are only cosmetically better (more attention to detail and finish), or are they actually better guitars to play as well?
I am also intrigued by the Vanessa model guitar, which looks very attractive as well.
