If I had that guitar I wouldn't let if go for anything!!! That's one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen and I can't imagine how it could be topped!!

LOL...thanks for the kind words! As I mentioned, before I arranged to have a guitar built, this guitar was beautiful, but quiet. That was just about a year ago, and since then, the guitar has really blossomed. It is just as sweet, but louder now, and apparently it will continue to bloom. I can't imagine what this will sound like in the future. If it were now, I would not consider selling this. I am too deep in the process with my build to cancel at this point, so that's why this is for sale. Once I post the GS LTD Maple, if that sells, then this doesn't. I'd like to sell one of them to cover some of the cost of the custom.

Again, I really appreciate the nice comments!

Default SOLD, pending payment and delivery

As the title suggests, the guitar has been sold to a working musician who will give it a good home and the play time it deserves. Happy for him and know he'll love it.

Thanks, LOL. It almost seemed like I was writing about a puppy I couldn't keep.

Seriously though, it was nice to speak with someone who simply wants the guitar, made a reasonable cash offer so I save fees, and sounds like he will really appreciate it. And, with my build moving along rapidly, it comes at a great time!

Default Many thanks to Scott, the proud new owner...

I want to send big thanks to Scott, who arranged to meet me in NJ for a personal hand-off. He is an absolute gentleman and I would strongly suggest, if you have the opportunity, to connect with him. I'm looking forward to learning more about the trio/duo he performs with (Chixy Dix...look them up on Facebook and let him know you found him through the AGF).

More than anything, he was a pleasure to deal with and made this an easy transaction.

So, thank you Scott.

Sincerely,
Mike
