I just wanted to put in a good word for this guitar and for Jim, the seller.

I was in communication with Jim about this guitar as I had been looking for a Martin Blackwell double top for a while. Jim was very accommodating and willing to work with me trying to try out the guitar - even though I am in Canada and the guitar is a long way away right now.

While I was trying to figure out a way to make that all work, fate shined down upon me, and I discovered a 2010 Blackwell double top for sale locally from a well known teacher/performer. I was lucky enough to get to try this local one out in my own house over a pot of tea with the (former) owner, and I jumped at the chance to buy it. It's a great guitar in every way - the sound, the fit and finish, the responsiveness - and I couldn't be happier with it. I'm sure this one is just as good as mine.

Somewhere along the way I had contacted Martin about ordering a guitar from him. At that time his price for a new guitar was pretty much double this asking price, and his waiting list was well over two years. So this seems like a prime chance to get a first class guitar from a top notch seller at a great price and without the wait.

Cheers, Chris

Nomex. Every bit as good as a Bruck I Owned at half the price. I will give it to a local college if no takers by year end.

dofpic, Hang in there for a just a bit longer. Your Blackwell will find its new home. As someone here said earlier "what's not to like...trusted seller who confirms the sound" and respected member I might add. For someone looking for a guitar, it doesn't get much better than this.
