Default Simon Fay 2013 Model One (24” scale)

This is a Holy Grail.
Simon Fay makes just one model only and he has perfected it.

MODEL ONE
The Model One is a modern analogue to the traditional Martin OM. I build with a strong emphasis on clarity, note separation, and balance but not at the expense of tonal complexity or warmth. The response is lively and vibrant with excellent volume and projection. The design is versatile and can accommodate a wide variety of playing styles from melodic fingerstyle to heavy strumming. Currently, it is the only model I offer.

This has:
A gorgeous Sinker redwood top
Flamed and wavy Claro walnut with sapwood
Mahogany neck
Tiled wood headstock
Alessi tuners
Double sides
Depth 3.5-4.5”
Width 15.2”
Ameritage case
24” scale use medium strings![/b]
13 frets
1 3/4 ‘ nut
2 1/4” saddle

Here’s Bobby Swanson’s YouTube:

Offering at a very reasonably low price of $5950 for this rarely offered Simon Fay which would be priced at $10,500 today.

It is in near mint condition.

Default very nice

Very nice guitar Alan. You shouldn't post guitars like this. You know how I feel about Simon Fey guitars. You might be getting a call from your friendly neighborhood guitar addict.

For any body that might take this the wrong way, Alan is a good friend of mine and we both live in the 808. Plus I do like Simon's guitars and this one is great.

Who knows, it could soon be mine.

Hey Big Jim!
I thought of you when I posted this...
It is everything a Simon Fay should be.

Had the privilege to sample some of Alan’s stash. Quite the collection I must say. With 3 om’s to my name (actually 4 since one I keep at my mom’s) I can only drool from the sidelines. Whoever gets this special Simon Fay will not be disappointed, super comfortable with a very rich tone. All of his guitars are like new condition in his wonderful air-conditioned condo. More fun than all of our local guitar shops!

Yeah, this is how I feel. Most days I think I did the right thing pursuing a science career. But then I look in this forum and see all the beautiful (in both sound and look) guitars that I can't afford, and wonder if I should have done something else with my life.

Anyway. This guitar is utterly gorgeous; and from the YouTube video, sounds fantastic. Someone will be very lucky.

Hey there Naluguy aka “surf dude”,
Glad you enjoyed the guitar lineup last week. It was my pleasure to meet you. Interesting that a guitar shop owner is now amongst one of several who’s interest has been piqued.

Yes, this Simon Fay is special one of a kind stuff.
Happy Thanksgiving !

I have always been very fond of this particular Fay guitar. It is a stunner.

Hey Joe,
This is an absolute guitar.

I’ll toss in free express shipping as long as you don’t live in Siberia.

I had the opportunity to play this guitar a couple of weeks ago, and the positive descriptions above are no exaggeration. Style, design, playability, and SOUND are all first-rate, and Alan takes great care of his guitars in a humidity and temperature controlled environment. Wonderful aesthetics and woods too!

Many thanks Karl.
Always good to have you over.
Karl also has great guitars. It’s fortunate that we can experience each other’s guitar.
