Everything about this guitar feels natural and intimate. Practically new, this 2009 Sharp has virtually no play wear, boasts amazing chocolate to red master grade East Indian Rosewood back and sides with Master Grade Sinker Redwood on top, and amazingly figured snakewood bindings. The 25.34375 inch scale is easy on the hands, and Don’s Honduran Mahogany neck is carved with a slightly shallow C profile that fit everyone who picked up this SC for a demo.

The voice is classic Sharp: smooth bass response, great string-to-string balance, and that sweet spot between warmth and clarity that makes for rich, defined notes. The Sinker Redwood top adds an extra depth of natural, woodiness to the overall voice. This was one of the first guitars Don made after studying under Ervin Somogyi. This instrument boasts the same bracing and design concepts of his TT series guitars. Don loved it so much, he kept it for himself.

Although this instrument has been lightly played, Don is offering a full warranty with this guitar.

Don’s guitars don’t come up for sale very often. This is not one to miss.

Price: $7500.00 obo.

Darn. I was looking for guitar with a scale length of 25.4374. That longer length will surely throw me off.

That's sure some beauty though.

I'm far from able to buy another guitar at the moment due to setting a personal record last year. Anyway, one of these guitars was a Don Sharp DN. It's outstanding and I'd highly recommend.
