Default 2021 IRIS DF Burst with Sinker mahogany back and sides

I just purchased a very nice IRIS DF with a beautiful sinker mahogany back and sides, a nice burst top with attractive vintage-looking body binding on top and bottom. I love the look and tone but I'm finding the 2 5/16" bridge spacing a little bit wide for my playing style and the neck scale bothers my left shoulder. So I'm looking to trade for either an IRIS DF Smeck (12 fret) with narrower string spacing or perhaps another smaller body IRIS like the OG model with narrower string spacing. I prefer their burst finishes and I really like their mild relic which has the checked gloss finish, so these are considerations for trade. Beyond that, short scale guitars of similar value will also be considered with preferred nut width of 1 3/4" and string spacing between 2 3/16" and 2 1/4". I prefer guitars with a pickup system as well but that's not a deal breaker. PM me with what you have.

What makes my DF special/different: The biggest thing is it has a really nice looking set of sinker mahogany back and sides. The sound is great - you get that mid-forward dry warmth of mahogany but with a little extra shimmer and chime in the high end and a little extra low. Along with the wider string spacing, this sweet tone really makes for a wonderful fingerstyle guitar and when played with a pick it gets really loud, easily cutting through any mix. The guitar is in great shape overall with just a few minor marks here and there. One of the little decal blocks is missing on the headstock and there is a minor finish dent under the G string next to the pickguard. Both came this way from the factory. There is a very small and shallow dent on the neck at the 10th fret. I installed a front strap button. Everything else is stock with a 1 3/4" nut, 2 5/16" string spacing and 25" 14 fret scale.

I'll sell the guitar shipped in the original hard shell case (in excellent condition), with original white bridge and end pins for $2,250. PayPal or postal money order. Ship to CONUS addresses only. PM me with what you have to trade or any other questions. Photos from Eddie's Guitars:
