Default Circa D-18 Adirondack & Beeswing Mahogany

I am selling my Circa D-18 dreadnaught, serial #34, hand-built by master luthier John Slobod in 2007.

The guitar features a Mastergrade Adirondack spruce top, Adirondack spruce braces, gorgeous Honduran Beeswing Mahogany back and sides, hide glue construction, bone nut and saddle, gold Waverly tuners, bone bridge pins, and an ebony bridge and fretboard. The nut width is 1-3/4" and the string spacing at the saddle is 2-1/4". The guitar has never had a pickup installed and does not have a strap button installed. The neck is straight with a low profile C-shape. About a year ago, Randy Hughes of Hughes Guitar & Repair (https://www.hughesguitarsandrepair.com) replaced the bridge due to a hairline crack in the bridge. The new bridge was supplied by John Slobod. The repair was perfect and made what was already a sweet sounding guitar even richer and fuller in tone. Randy also dressed the frets and did a full setup. The guitar is loud and the tone is dry,woody, warm, and vintage. Super comfortable neck. The action is perfect, playability is top notch. The Canadian made Calton flight case is granite blue with some exterior cosmetic scratches, but in great condition overall. The guitar is in excellent condition.

Here is the original Dream Guitars video of this guitar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clEsF7VKvQw

I'm asking $6,500 Paypal'd and shipped to the CONUS. I will consider shipping elsewhere, but check with me first. All reasonable offers are welcome.

No trade offers, please.

Thanks to you both. It is a sweet looking and a sweeter sounding dread. John Slobod knows his craft.

Based on the Circas I've been lucky enough to play, I can only imagine this is a gem of a guitar. John Slobod is truly a master luthier. GLWS
