Default Goodall RGC 2003

PRICE DROP!

Hey gang! Up for sale is my 2003 Goodall RGC. I splurged to get my dream guitar (this one), but having a fourth baby means guitars need to move. I've always wanted a Goodall and I took a chance on this one and it's been everything I've always wanted. To me, this is the perfect sized guitar...it sounds huge, balanced, warm, and all those overtones that Goodall's are known for. This one, for me, is just the right amount. I played some that was so rich in overtones that strumming it made it sound washy and oversaturated (maybe it was just me!), but this one sounds incredible both finger picked and with some good ole' strumming!



I tried to take all the photos that I would want to see if I was in your shoes. The top, sides, and back are in great, clean condition. The base of the neck has a couple of marks which I really accentuated in the sunlight. It's not nearly as pronounced in normal settings (unless you happen to play in the morning sun a lot!). In fact, I honestly never think about it. I had a full sized LR Baggs anthem installed and it sounds insane. Woody, clear, and oh so rich!



There is next to no wear on the frets. Photos should show that in the first position. It's been played some but not a ton over the last 15 years. You will not be disappointed with the way this guitar sounds and feels.



The case is in very good condition. No problems with the buckles, no tearing or ripping at the handle, etc.



The current saddle is a tad short length-wise. The original saddle is in the case, but for whatever reason, my luthier decided to cut a brand new nut when he installed the anthem. He later explained he didn't want to shave down the existing nut, which I appreciate, but I wish the new nut he cut would have been the regular goodall sized instead of the "taylor" sized nut. I'd say it's about 1/16" of an inch short on each side, which isn't a huge deal, but it's definitely worth noting. If you hate it, you can just use the original goodall nut that will come in the case.



Cash sale only at this point (no trades).



Now Asking $3195 shipped CONUS. I'm thinking this is a very fair price with shipping and fees and hope someone finds decades of enjoyment with this guitar. Hopefully after the kids get out of diapers I will end up with another Goodall. Thanks for looking and feel free to ask any questions.

Nice looking guitar! Could you post the specs on the guitar? This has a sitka top?

Yes! It has a Sitka top w EIR back and sides. I think koa binding.

I donít know measurements of spacing or nut but I think itís standard Goodall. If someone is really interested Iíd be happy to even video chat and let them hear the guitar and show any measurements. Not sure if thatís kosher but thought that would be a helpful use of technology.
