Description

In good condition for a near vintage instrument. Serial number 20923544. I believe it was made around 1992, but can't be absolutely sure. It has some divots over the first few frets, but this doesn't affect playability. Note that part of the penultimate fret (near soundhole) is missing. However, again, this doesn't affect playability as that fret can't be reached anyway. Note that it doesn't come with a case.

The guitar is comfortable to play due to its low set action. The tuning heads keep it in tune. Recently strung with Savarez 510 AR Alliance Cantiga normal tension strings (£17.50 RRP). It has a clear, warm, bright tone.
The pickup is a Fishman SBT-E pickup, designed specifically to amplify classical guitars. It is a sound transducer pickup and retails between £119-£155. It's passive, so one doesn't have to worry about batteries failing during performance. It's one of the most highly regarded pickups for classical guitar.
The quality pickup and strings pretty much indicate the quality tone and build of this guitar, which was purchased on the recommendation of an elderly classical guitarist friend. Not to sound preachy, but it really is a good idea to be open to advice and recommendations from experienced players who know what they're talking about. This guitar is consistently given great kudos as a recording and live performance instrument by experienced players who understand tone. You just will not get the quality and richness of tone in a newer guitar under £1000. I know this because I actually bought a £985 classical guitar a few months ago and was extremely disappointed to finally realize that this guitar clearly had a superior tone. To be clear, I waited for a few weeks to allow the new guitar to open up. Didn't happen, and luckily, I was able to return the guitar and obtain a refund. I have kept this one ever since. Then again, of course, this is all subjective.

No exchange offers please, and no requesting me to contact on a separate email address.

Collection from Ealing, west London.
