Sounds like the $600 you negotiated was too low for him to follow through on. Good job!vic-victor wrote:I haven't have a chance to play one of these, but I had an intention to get one a couple of years ago. As far as I know Bruce is not a luthier, but a US based trader. He had some nice looking guitars advertised on e - b a y at a very low price at that time. In his listing he mentioned that the guitars were Asian-made. They looked good and a solid Brazilian rosewood guitar was selling at around $600. I did some negotiations, agreed on price inclusive of postage to Oz, sent the money through, but got it back in 3 days. Bruce refused to send a guitar saying he has been advised that Australian customs may not allow BRW into Australia, plus the postage quote he got was a lot higher than he expected. So I ended up buying Spanish guitar elsewhere.
