My mom read in her diary when I turned 5 they brought me to Toys R Us to buy a guitar with my birthday money, I told my parents that none of the guitars had the right sound and I didn't want any of them.

This is an outstanding deal on a Claxton guitar.
I have mine and it's not going anywhere.
For any of you trying to sell a guitar for more, bite the bullet, reduce your price, and buy this now. It will exceed your expectations. Ed's guitars are incomparable.

Another discreet bombshell from Mr. Claxton!!

The best guitar purchase I've ever made was when I rolled the dice and bought my Claxton OM, based on reputation alone.

A life-changing instrument, it continues to drive a tectonic shift in what I hear and how I play.

Every one of my local picking pals, experienced aficionados to a man, wishes he had my guitar.

I correspond regularly with other Claxton owners. We all agree, our Claxtons have given us a real education in what it means to bond with a musical instrument.

Not only would it cost nearly 25K to have the master build this guitar today, there's no guarantee that the cash is all it takes to get one. Ed is still making guitars, but fewer and fewer as time goes by. At this stage in his career, he wishes to spend his time only doing projects he feels are special.

So, fence-straddlers, sit up and heed my words.



(Did I mention the part where I rolled the dice?)

Thank you both for the support. I agree Claxton guitars are amazing and I feel that I am selling it at a great price. I may just end up keeping it.

I can't for the life of me figure out why this guitar hasn't sold..... I played it a few months back, its really spectacular !! Ed's guitars are not that easy to find either, if it had a cutaway, it would be in my den....
Happy New Year John, GLWTS !

Happy New Year Dan. I agree, this is a 24k plus guitar and many think I am nuts to sell it, and for this price itís a bit ridiculous. Will see, I may just end up keeping it.
