Please do not denigrate a guitar for sale or the luthier who made it. Moderators will remove such messages. Whether or not the sale should proceed is entirely up to the parties involved.

Members who buy an instrument unseen do so at their own risk and should exercise due caution. For added security, it is advisable to use a licensed online escrow service (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escrow).

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) means that some materials used in guitars, although formerly allowed, may now require permits or be illegal to sell across national borders, or even locally in some places. It is the responsibility of the buyer and seller to ensure that the sale complies with all applicable laws in their respective countries.

Very clean looking David Rouse guitar, Mathew
Since David Rouse is in Scotland as you are, you must know him well. Would you share your thoughts about David Rouse guitar's sound and how it plays?
I assume this guitar was commissioned by you, so does it still have the common 650mm scale and 52mm nut width?
I've enjoyed listening to your performances many times. Robert

Hi Robert,

The scale length and nut width are standard and it sounds clean and clear, a very classical sound.

Best,

Matthew

"Since David Rouse is in Scotland as you are, you must know him well"

I thought he was based in Essex?

Absolute bargain, David's guitars are just wonderful. I would buy this if I didn't already have 2 from him and a third on order. The waiting list is over 2 years long and you won't find one at a dealers.
