Smile Circa D-18 Adi Beeswing hog(+YouTube clip)

This below is YouTube sound clip~!

$6500
Of course, free shipping worldwide~!!!




John is pretty amazing luthier, it's been 16 years, but it is still very great condition!

John checked it when I bought it last year and make it very good condition!(With replacing headplate!)

I loved this instrument and I played it, almost everyday.

I wanna change my guitar by vintage Martin vibe OM, so I'm gonna sell it.

Circa
Adirondack(Adi braces of course!)
Beeswing Mahogany(Special set)
All hide glue
Ebony fretboard, bridge
Ebony headplate(Original= Rosewood. Replaced by luthier John Slobod)
Rosewood binding, endpiece, hill cap.

It's from 2004. So it has weather checks. And it has finish damage(See photo, it's blue circle.)

And this below is my shop manager wrote. Sorry for poor English cuz I used translator and my poor brain, haha.

The head plate has been replaced by Ebony by luthier himself and re-finished. This instrument sold after luthier John Slobod completing it's own inspection and setting. This model is expected to cost around $10,000 if purchased with the same specifications based on new product. The head machine is currently being replaced by the Schaller Grandtune satin pearl with ebony buttons after the purchase of the guitar. All hot hide glue constructed. The guitar has a fine filling and the neck has a micro-leaf with the neck angle slightly backwards. There are quite a few weather checks on the top, fine finish moxibustion on the underside of the top, and overall other conditions indicate dry and managed marks. It's getting better now and there's still some dryness left. But I don't have a problem using it right now, and the settings are good. After consignment, we continue to manage humidity and tension, and it seems that we can recover to a good condition, and we are not having any problems playing now. The hard case is slightly larger than a regular diva, so there is some play, but you can use it. The fret feel fine, with fine side plates, fine scratches, fine wood, fine finish, pressed finish-cre in the center of the back plate, and the finish is contracted on the backstrip. Weather check and finish image are actually microscopic. There are fine scratches and fine scratches on the head plate. The lateral lobe is a beautifully patterned tonewood with a mixture of flaming and maple Big Leaf-like patterns, creating a sense of an structurally well-made guitar. Sound propensity is very vintage, and there is an image on the neck and neck, and neck of the neck, and finish of the neck. Finish itself has a very weak feeling. If you manage it well and play it often, it'll give you a much better sound than it is now.

Lovely instrument. Wish I could...

However, I'd be really surprised if 'Cobraguy' doesn't contact you soon.

GLWS!
