US $.1200 Joseph Medina C3 Spruce 2017, East Providence, RI - Sold

Post by Joe Medina » Tue Nov 28, 2017 1:51 am

--Year of Construction: 11/2017
--Scale Length: 650mm
--Top: Englemann Spruce
--Back/Sides: Bubinga
--Fingerboard/Bridge: Indian Rosewood
--Sound: Deep Strong Bass
--Condition: Brand New
--Price: $.3000
--Viewing/Trial Possible: May be viewed in East Providence, RI, or may be shipped out at the interested party's expense
--Location: East Providence, RI

Completed on 11/10/17, from a 43 Hauser Plantilla, this guitar features a Santos Hernandez style rosette, with matching back strip, purflings,
bottom strip, and headpiece strip. Also, the fingerboard is slightly elevated.
This guitar is noticeably loud with strong bass, and good resonance, while still maintaining distinct tone separation and quality. No grain filler was used on the back and sides, as on this one I wanted to maintain-- and feature--the raw quality of the Bubinga wood species.
The headstock is carved with a new design, and the guitar is the first to feature it. Finally, this guitar is completely French Polished. I give a 3 day trial 100% money back offer.

Sound Sample. Sorry, im not the best player, but gives you an idea of the sound: https://youtu.be/lawXktkcS8w

At that price, it would be hard to pass up to try it out! Good luck on the sale. I wish I was looking for a guitar right now!

I sure wish I could either play it or hear it a little more clearly. If I could, I might be interested. But I'm ALL the way down in Louisiana.

The nut spacing is 53mm, and at the 12th fret 63mm. The spacing at the saddle is proportional, meaning that the heavier strings get wider spacing they need. This is so that each space differs from the next by exactly .004". This creates the comfortable string spacing that players expect. The strings don't feel more crowded at the thicker strings. But the average is 12mm. Yes, the case is included. Give me your address and I can estimate shipping for you if you are interested in it.
