Arrow 2014 Kraut Braz/Euro 10K

Happy New Year forum members. Why not start the New Year with a fresh start and new guitar.

I’ve decided to sell my 2014 Raymond Kraut OM. I bought this guitar from forum member Fngrstyl (Chad) and have been using it strictly in a recording environment. My studio is always properly humidified so everything stays good! PRICE DROP for New Year $10,000 plus shipping

Currently the guitar is located in Arizona so you'd be getting the guitar shipped directly from Ray and it has been looked over and certified as being in excellent condition. You can contact Ray for more information.

To see the pictures on Ray's site, check this link: http://www.krautguitars.com/sold-kra...-2014-om-model

Specs: Scale length is 25” and nut size 1 25/32” I am not sure of the string spacing but can look up if need be. Guitar has K&K pickup installed which I tested to work perfectly.

My pics are here on dropbox.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uqzdc6gbn...oaCG53kda?dl=0

I will try to add them here as well.

Price: $10,000 plus shipping from Arizona

This guitar was a custom order from an AGF member back in 2013. There are some really great pictures of the build process in the original build thread shown here:

Ray makes an incredible guitar, intonation spot on, Alessi tuners are the best.. Let's try to make a deal. Trades also considered.

Mine too, Dave. It was a little heartbreaking looking at Kens pictures. I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Ken when he came to play this Kraut and we have remained friends every since. I can say this is a great guitar, and Ken is a straight up good guy. Nothing to worry about with this sale. If I was wealthier I would buy this back in a heartbeat.

Thanks Chad, it will be tough to let this one go but the voice of vintage traditional type guitars are calling me.

This one called me! SOOO much power it has, but....you have to like it all, and I'm picky about necks... Most people love a thinner profile. you should add that maybe? Hope she sells to a good home.

Some vids of Don Latarski playing this sweet axe!

For those interested, the guitar was sent to Ray in February of 2018 as he has been trying to sell it for me. Ray has agreed to ship this guitar from his workshop where it has been. It is a remarkable instrument, like all of Ray's work and all of Ervin Somogyi past apprentices that are making a name for themselves in the world of custom lutherie.

It is listed on Ray's site under "Available Now" the third item listed "FOR SALE"

Thumbs up

Wow - that Braz back is stunning! Ray's guitars are incredible, I am a huge fan.

This is an amazing price for the model, woods and builder. Plus it comes with Ray Kraut's full warranty for the buyer - insanely great deal!!
