Default Rozawood Wizard B (think Martin OM-42) - PRICE REDUCTION TO ROCK-BOTTOM!

Im selling my amazing 2010 Rozawood Wizard B guitar.

This guitar, build by master luthier Roman Zajicek of Prague, is a faithful tribute to the Martin OM-42. It sports a beautiful bearclaw alpine spruce top, matched with an east Indian rosewood back and sides of very high quality. The scale is 645 mm (25 11/32 inches), and nut width is 44.5 mm ( 1 inches). The fingerboard is genuine ebony and the neck is solid genuine mahogany. Nitro finish, and curly maple and abalone trim on the top. It's equipped withgold-plated Gotoh 710 vintage tuners, a double-action adjustable truss rod, and a Rozawood hard-shell case. It's currently set up for light strings (.12 - .52).

In terms of condition, the only ding I could find is a very small one (I couldn't photograph it with my crummy camera) in the maple binding on the lower bout at the back/bottom. Its otherwise in excellent condition, and does very well with both fingerpicking and flatpicking its capable of the high volumes necessary for bluegrass. In fact, as I noted in a post when I acquired the guitar, it was louder than the Bourgeois slope D it replaced. I was amazed.

Replacement value today is approximately 4200. Was asking 2950; then 2700. PRICE REDUCTION TO ROCK-BOTTOM: 2600 - and at that price, I'm afraid I won't haggle at all.

Im located in Zagreb and Im interested in a local sale - pickup only, as I'm not prepared to ship. Yes, I realize it's a long-shot, etc.

The photos I've uploaded are the originals from the vendor's website when I purchased the guitar, and I'm using them with his kind permission. Rudi at the Fellowship of Acoustics is indeed a good guy.

PM me for any questions, directions to come and have a look, etc.





The back isn't quite as reddish as shown here, but it IS freakin' gorgeous:

Question Any idea about the sound

Hi, Scholar!
Could you please more or less describe the sound of the guitar? I know it is difficult, but your long experience might help. What about the profile of the neck, too? Thank you in advance.
I'll also seize the opportunity to thank you (and all the others, if they happen to read this) for your post as I was contemplating buying a Bourgeois OMJ in early 2015. I eventually decided against it, for it sounded too boomy to my ears. Sound is really a personal matter... I bought instead a used Northwood 00-14 all mahogany and also a used Martin CEO-7, but I still dream of the one guitar that could replace them all!

Hi, and thanks for the inquiry. I've also replied to your PM, so check your inbox...

The sound is full and rich, with incredible clarity. When flatpicked, the guitar is also LOUD. In the hands of a good fingerpicker, it's capable of excellent tonal range and subtlety. The neck profile is a "non-chunky" modified C and, in terms of comfort, reminds me of the neck of a Huss & Dalton DS I used to own. Very pleasant to play. In fact, it's considerably less chunky than the neck I had on my glorious old Brazilian Northwood mini-jumbo years ago. However, YMMV, as I don't know if John has changed his standard neck profile in recent years.

Would the Rozawood replace your Northwood and Martin guitars? I dunno...but I bet it would come close!

Just a bump for a beautiful instrument that deserves a new home...
