This guitar is totally lovable. The rosette is a close replica of the original. The original FE 5 had a 4 piece back of BRW. The back and wood on this is full of sparkle and 3D holographics.

Let me know if you have questions or ideas to discuss.
I rarely offer a guitar here, although I am proud to offer this one here. There are several members here that do have my instruments...
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

A beauty to look at, to hold and to play.

I wish you could see this one in person. The pictures only hint at the beauty of the wood. (Thanks... glad you are enjoying the maple)

I located a sound file of this guitar. It's me playing some of Sor's Andante Largo...

PS.
A member asked whether the guitar really sounds that good. The recording is raw. No reverb or other effects.

FHC,
Thanks for the comment and wishing good luck.
I frequent Planet Earth, perhaps we'll meet up when I visit that part of the solar system.

Justfun,
It's just a feeling. It's an amazing guitar that just has not received the attention here. I don't want to think about it wallowing here. Perhaps I've under-priced it. I have brought it to Portland for the handmade musical instrument exhibit this weekend and it will be featured in a mini concert.
Thanks for asking.
Steve

Thank you for your replied
I was wondering why you wanted to de-list since is such elegant (high class looking guitar) and I thank you for posting.
