Smile Bamburg JSB Cedar/Braz Cut, Bevel, NM! Return now OK!

Here is a very SWEET Small Jumbo from AGF sponsor Jeff Bamburg

Now offering 3 day Return Privilege For AGFers in good standing.
I SERIOUSLY DOUBT THIS IS COMING BACK!!!!

As usual:
Must be in the same beautiful condition.
Must be returned in the same OCD packaging and swaddling, and tuned down to C, etc.
Return Sender pays ALL actual shipping in both directions.
I will leave it insured on my Heritage Account until acceptance or return and inspection. But I ask Return shipper to insure with USPS for $200.
Then USPS has skin in the game, and camouflage is good!
Upon inspection I will gladly refund the purchase price less ALL shipping and any remaining PP fees.
I just want to break even on shipping. Not trying to make any money on Returns!

Now considering reasonable offers....

Very high grade Western Red Cedar over Brazilian Rosewood

List price is $9,700! At least...

Was asking $5450, shipped, insured and happy to split fees if used.

Now up on Reverb. If you prefer to use Reverb I will accept $5000 PLUS actual shipping and all fees.

Beautiful workmanship and woods

TONE and playability are top notch! Nice videos of very similar JSBs online!
Jeff Bamburg instruments have sold at Dream Guitar, and The North American Luthier with excellent reviews!

Built in 2012 for the owner of Heart's Home Acoustic in San Antonio Texas. It certainly appears it was an investment axe, as it is virtually unplayed!

Comfort arm bevel, elevated Fretboard Extension for a freely moving top.
Jescar hard gold color frets, Gotoh 510 Minis with Ebony buttons, cutaway, "snakehead" headstock. Ameritage Silver OHSC.

When I received this guitar I realized it had barely been played. I hung it for a week with a Tone-Rite and it has already started to wake up! Hanging with it again until it goes...
It did need a bit of set up work, so I took it to my friend and tech, Pat Quinn, who works full-time as a Senior Tech at Taylor Repair in El Cajon. Pat worked for over 10 years doing full time setup and repair at San Diego's famed Blue Guitar before moving to Taylor Repair over 10 years ago. He also has his own shop at home. His setups are absolutely first class, as is his repair work.

This needed NO repairs, and appears it has never had any or any modifications, but it did receive a truss rod adjustment and some minor fret leveling as well as a slight action drop at the Bone Nut and more on the beautiful compensated Bone Saddle. Pat installed new Elixir Medium PB nanoweb strings. It now plays like butter. 6/64" and 4/64" action. Lots of height left to adjust at the saddle, too.

Only the slightest signs of being played, and no fret wear at all.

This is designed for FingerStyle but I took it to a dear friend who can really flatpick and he gave it a serious workout and raved about the tone and ease of play.

From Bamburg's website, which is very interesting:

Body Length: 19 7/8"
Upper Bout: 11 1/8"
Lower Bout: 15 7/8"
Depth @ Heel: 3 1/2 "
Depth @ Tail: 4 1/2"
Scale Length: 25.4" Nut Width: 1 3/4"
String Spacing: 2 1/4"

AG review of a Player model JSB: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=M5py5fRj16M

Why am I selling this so soon? I recently took this in a partial trade knowing it would need to go as I have another (#4) John Kinnaird Super Custom in progress!

It is a real honey of a guitar but I am just a 12 fret guy, and this is way too cherry for me to gig without worrying !!!

Save a bundle of moolah and a wait! You could be playing this one next week!
If you have been considering a Bamburg here is your chance. And in BRAZILIAN Rosewood, to boot.

Continental United States shipping only, due to the Brazilian RW

It will be beyond pro packed and shipped USPS third day Priority insured on my Heritage account. Signature required!

I am always happy to answer any questions or just talk guitars!
619-445-1189 home. 9-9 or so, west coast time thanks.

Play on gang!

Paul

Smile Strings...

I was informed yesterday by another Bamburg owner that Jeff voices his guitars for Light gauge strings. Nice comfort factor!
Since I tune down to D concert and open D I figure the Mediums should be about right for me. YMMV...

This sounds GREAT, with a bit more snap than I anticipated from the Cedar top.
I will try to get some better pics of the very dark Brazilian back and sides.

Again, I am most happy to answer any questions and yak guitars!

619-445-1189. 9-9 or so west coast time, please.

Cheers

Paul

No affiliation with seller but I have played this very guitar before and I can tell anyone who’s interested that they’re getting the most balanced, easy playing and ‘professional feeling’ guitar I’ve ever played. This is truly a stunning instrument. Good luck!

Smile Tuesday bump

Happy Tuesday to all

A couple folks interested but still here....

jeff Bamburg is quite highly regarded! And I can see why. This is continuing to open up beautifully as it hangs with the Tone-Rite.

It really is very VERY near mint.

Cheers

Paul

Smile Up on Reverb...

Thanks Godfather! Hope you trip over a big bag of money!!!

Now up on Reverb for way more but I will accept $5K PLUS fees and shipping from AGF folks.
Shoot me a message here first and I will respond. Then you can make a Reverb offer for $5,500 and I will accept. We can work it out from there.
Some folks do prefer the security of Reverb! And I do not mind it myself...

Play on Gang and have FUN

Paul
