Please do not denigrate a guitar for sale or the luthier who made it. Moderators will remove such messages. Whether or not the sale should proceed is entirely up to the parties involved.

Members who buy an instrument unseen do so at their own risk and should exercise due caution. For added security, it is advisable to use a licensed online escrow service (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escrow).

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) means that some materials used in guitars, although formerly allowed, may now require permits or be illegal to sell across national borders, or even locally in some places. It is the responsibility of the buyer and seller to ensure that the sale complies with all applicable laws in their respective countries.

In answer to a recent enquiry, I am looking to consolidate my collection in order to fund another instrument purchase. I am seriously motivated to make a sale, and do have significant flexibility on the price, so feel free to make an offer. This is an excellent instrument sonically, visually, and ergonomically. The pics do not do it justice. I am not interested in trades, with the possible exception being an older vintage Velazquez in excellent condition.

I will have intermittent internet access over the next week, so please be patient if I don't respond immediately.

Beautiful guitar. I've had the pleasure of playing one of these at Rubio's shop in LA and it was a real treat. Good luck on your sale.

Thank you for the kind (and accurate) remarks. I've owned many fine instruments over the years. Without a doubt, the quality of workmanship and choice of materials here are first rate, as are playability and tone. I appreciate the comments.
