This guitar is still available. It was on loan to young guitar student attending UC Santa Cruz in CA. She made a recording of the sound which can be heard here on soundcloud - https://soundcloud.com/user-314584614/v ... -prelude-4

The guitar is in the San Francisco Area and I can arrange for it to be seen or shipped.
Thank you for looking.

The rosette is made of ebony and rosewood, the light wood is ebony sap wood.

The back is multi panel and made of Hinoki, a Japanese cousin to the Lawson Cypress of the West coast of North America. I have harvested and stocked old Hinoki in my shop for the purpose of building guitars with this wood. Hinoki backs and sides matched with a spruce or cedar top makes excellent high quality flamenco guitars, and this Hinoki backed guitar is not exception.

I'm in the mood to clear off my lingerers and experiments, This one is the other guitar I have I'd like to find a sincere player for, Contact me privately if at all interested I may be able to wheel and deal for this one. The unusual ones don't sell in the normal market as well and they need some price adjustment help.

This is a very nice guitar, but has been difficult to sell because I guess it looks different.

This summer I need to make my every two year trip home to CA from where I live in Japan to visit my US family. I'm going to open the sale of this guitar to reasonable offers to pay for my trip. If you are interested in acquiring a unique and nicely playing guitar for a negotiated price please contact me via message. I'm not going to let it go for free, but this could be an opportunity to get an interesting guitar through private talk. My regular fees for an instrument will remain in place for the more conventional guitars, which seem to do fine in the market. I'm letting this go under market because it's a prototype and a caprice of design whimsy on my part, not everyones thing.

Have a second look and make me a pitch!
