Hi Peter,
That is a beautiful looking guitar - and the videos of its sister sound great. Unfortunately for me the household minister of finance has put me on a strict new guitar austerity program;-) Someone is going to get a great guitar at a great price. Good luck with the sale.

String guru Peter,

You had said...The only thing better than one Kellaway guitar is two!!

I'd add on saying...The only thing better than one Howell guitar is two ;)

A very resonant and responsive guitar imo. Just the type of guitar I like. GLWS.

Dan Kellaway 2015 for ~$5000 is certainly a very good buy. I had a chance to play his latticed guitar a few years ago. Beautiful woodwork, powerful and percussive sound with good string separation. Despite the latticed structure, it carried a sweet and mellow sound. Now, I myself feel tempted to acquire this particular guitar from Peter....

I used to own a lattice one. This one, traditionally braced but almost as loud, is more even top to bottom, has a better first string and better overall tonality. In another league in my opinion. :D

Oh dear. :desole: I am letting the side down with only one even though I am trying to change that. :(

That looks to be one hell of a nice guitar Peter. Severely tempted indeed if I wasn't in the process of looking at another guitar very soon.

I think justfun was close. Instead of saying that the average Australian had 5-6 guitars per household, he should have said Australian households have on average 5-6 guitars. I can attest to the accuracy of the latter as I have caused that statistic!

Hmm … I wonder could the simonm household qualify for an Oz visa based on that. :-)

Price revised to US$4950. Mods, would you please update the price in the listing.

Littleredkelpie, I am sorry I missed your question a little while ago. It is still available. (P.S. it's better to send a PM with this sort of request)

I had a Dan Kellaway a couple of years ago, it was beautiful guitar with superb tone, this will make someone happy.

I scratch my head that this is still unsold, but that's the vagaries of markets for you. Price reduced to US4500.

Hi Ludwig

That’s always possible. So long as there was no cash involved I’d be happy with a Hauser I or maybe a Bouchet! :D

I’ll email you.

Cheers
Peter
