Default Burton LeGeyt CLM Brz/Adi PRICE DROP $OLD

This is one of the best modern guitars I've ever owned, and literally the only reason I'm listing it is that I have a chance at what for me would be the Grail, a '31 OM. So, without further adieu, here is the link to the build thread that was started by the original owner:

https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/...d.php?t=307144

Photos:
















There is mild to moderate corduroy effect where a pickguard would go; this is due to strumming as well as a very thin french polish finish. It does not show up well in any of the photos. No other condition issues.

Burton's list is closed right now, but his last base price was $7500. With the Brazilian and a few other touches, his price would be north of 10k right now. That said, I am offering the guitar at $6500 price drop. All AGF buy and sale rules apply.

Thanks

Wow! Gorgeous! I just bought one of his newly re-designed 00-sized models at Woodstock and it's absolutely phenomenal. This is a great guitar at a very good price, without the 3-4 year wait along at his current pricing. These instruments are among the best built and sounding guitars I have ever played and owned, at a price point that makes me scratch your head and wonder how it's possible. Burton has designed his instruments around form and function, from the ground up, and based on his background and profession in the engineering department at Harvard, I'd say he definitely designed one heck of a mousetrap. I have no affiliation to the owner of this instrument nor the builder, I just want to make sure people that are unfamiliar with his work (or may be on the fence about buying one) understand what exactly is being offered for sale here and they know that these instruments don't become available very often. Good luck on your sale. I don't think this one will be here for long.

Smile Wow...

I just read the entire build thread. What a cool axe!!!

Very lovely work and the INTENTION involved was fantastic.

Best on the sale and congrats to the next owner of this outstanding instrument.

Cheers

This is a really good deal- This guitar passed back through my shop before heading to Matthew and I got to inspect it and do some tweaks for his style of playing. It has settled in really well and was playing and sounding great. The French polish certainly didn't hurt there

If anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. Also, I would be glad to do a proper setup and spot check to the new owners specs if they are willing to add another route to the shipping.

Happy GAS-ing to all you classifieds browsers

Thanks Burton for chiming in. To reiterate, this is one of my favorite guitars ever. Why sell? The holy grail 1931 OM18 is within reach, and like Parsifal, I cannot resist. If the purchase falls through, then this comes back to the fold. Thanks for looking.

Bump to the top. Also added some more imgur photos as well as an interior shot of the guitar to show the very unique bracing.

Bump to the top. I my have been dropped on my head to sell this guitar, but like Parsifal or Galahad, chasing the grail will cause you to blindly follow the irrational.

To the top. Maybe I'll get lucky and the OM will sell before this and I won't have to talk myself into the madness of selling one of my favorite guitars.
