2012 David Webber, Red Spruce/Ziricote Dreadnought *Sold*
 
This is a nice example of David's work for either finger style, flatpicking or strumming. The top is Appalachian Red Spruce from Aaron Hix and the Ziricote is from Hibdon Hardwood, both well quartered. I am the original owner.

Guitar has good sustain, with a tone that sides more to the fundamental side of the spectrum, rather than strong overtones. Tone is more modern than traditional. The guitar is in very good to excellent condition, no dents or marks, only normal player wear (nothing that shows in photographs). Guitar has been humidified and in a non-smoking environment.

The guitar was serviced at the Twelfth Fret in Toronto last year, light buff to clean it up, and the action lowered slightly. It is still set up slightly higher for strumming, lots of saddle left to lower it further. Frets in good condition.

All-in-all, this is a well balanced guitar. Originally purchased for $3775 CAD, asking $2125 (approx. $1605 USD at current exchange rates).

(EDIT: Oct 19/19 - I noted below that I did not have any equipment to record so I got an iRig and was able to produce a fairly good M4A recording of what the guitar sounds like. If interested, PM me your email address and I will send you the file.

I should also not that I am not looking for any trades as I am trying to reduce the total number of guitars at this time)

Here is my original AGF NGD post for this guitar -

https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/...d.php?t=266525

The reason for selling is that I no long play this guitar that much. Since I purchased my Michaud OO-R, I rarely pull this one out. This guitar should not just sit in its case and deserves to be played more (has aged well over the last 7 years). Would be a nice addition to anyone's collection and would make a nice option for someone looking to get into the custom guitar market. Actually, at this price point, it has good value, sound, and playability.

Payment via e-Transfer preferred, Paypal to verified address is the other option. Buyer to pay actual shipping costs. This guitar would ship from the Toronto area in Canada, better resolution pics available upon request via email.

Thanks for viewing.

Incredibly good buy for an instrument of this caliber, appearance, and what I would assume sound and play-ability. Particularly for someone here in the U.S.

If I wasn't 9 acoustic guitars in, I'd be tempted for sure!!

Good luck with your sale!

Thanks for your kind words. The term that best describes this guitar is “Balanced”. It looks and sounds good, and the neck profile is easy to play. It’s smaller then a standard dreadnought, but still has a full sound with good projection. Certainly not deficient in any one area, someone will be well pleased with their purchase of this guitar.

On the Webber home page it states the dreadnaught lower bout as being 15 1/2” so is this guitar a slightly custom size due to you providing the wood?

Do you have any recordings?

Thanks for noting this, I just pulled the info off my original NGD post. I went and measured this now and it stands at 15.375” lower, 11.625” upper. The sets I provided could easily have made a 16” guitar and I had not asked him to adjust his standard sizing.
