I've been through two myself, one Sitka one Adi. I'm done with D-18s.
Which did you like best and why?

You should have MF confirm what you will be getting. What they are showing could be an old set of pictures. They had an run of VTS topped guitars with newish features that when released a few years ago where designated as “custom”, but then recently changed to “special.” Double check what is stamped on the guitar.

Well then, we've all done our job.

As we all know, the number one job of AGF members is helping spend other people's money.

Congrats... hope it's a killer.

Thanks! But I need get back to the other side of this equation. Being the "spender" is the wrong side...

Sooooo,
Just checked! SDOTD just changed to a Martin GP-28E Standard Grand Performance! $2199! 😁

For instance, this one lists for $4500 which at 40% off would be $2700. He has it listed for $2800.

Ok I see. I didn't realize that the advertised price of the Customs was already so low. Probably why I can't seem to get any forums sponsors to go much lower on Customs.

I can't for the life of me sell my 517. Been trying since September. I just got serious about selling it in November, but there is absolutely zero interest in it. I can't figure out why. Price seems to be ok. Is not having the ES2 really that big of a turn off for folks???

No, it's because your original post still says $2275. No one notices your post way down the thread where you've lowered the price to $1900.

You need to edit that first post with the updated price!!! People have an attention span of 10 seconds...make it easy for them.
