As the soundsample proves, Canada is the home of some outstanding luthiers. Good luck with the sale. Given the sound quality the price is a bargain.

Are you interested in any trades for things? Otherwise if it's still around in about a month I'd love to get at it.

It's a very fine looking and sounding instrument. Is the price in US $ or Can $ - also are there any restrictions I'm exporting instruments from Canada ?

Hi, the price is in Canadian dollars.

There are no restrictions I can think of with exporting this guitar to Australia. If you're interested, feel free to send me a private message and I can get in touch with Jeff Sigurdson because I'm sure he'd be able to answer any of our questions.

Thanks,
Gord

This looks like an amazing deal at $5k Canadian. That comes up to around only $3900 USD. The Canadian dollar seems to be climbing so someone should probably take advantage of the favorable exchange rate while they still can. Jeff Sigurdson makes really great guitars

Hi Mods,

I apologize ... the price adjustment yesterday should also indicate US dollars in the title.
I also just noticed that I mistakenly wrote cedar in the title. It should be spruce, as depicted in the description and photos.

This guitar is spruce outside and cedar inside with cedar bracing, inspired by Jason Vieaux's Wagner guitar.

Thanks.
