Please do not denigrate a guitar for sale or the luthier who made it. Moderators will remove such messages. Whether or not the sale should proceed is entirely up to the parties involved.

Members who buy an instrument unseen do so at their own risk and should exercise due caution. For added security, it is advisable to use a licensed online escrow service (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escrow).

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) means that some materials used in guitars, although formerly allowed, may now require permits or be illegal to sell across national borders, or even locally in some places. It is the responsibility of the buyer and seller to ensure that the sale complies with all applicable laws in their respective countries.

Neck Width: 52mm at the nut with 43.5 mm string spacing.

Back / Sides: Pau Ferro (Machaerium scleroxylon) straight-grained with some sapwood to the lower bouts.
Bracing: Fan braced
Fingerboard / (bridge): Ebony fingerboard, rosewood bridge with bone-capped tie-block.
Sound: Clear. Sweet trebles, good balance across the strings. A pleasure to play.
Condition: Excellent, french polished. Part of an embarrassingly large collection so used perhaps once every couple of weeks for a couple of hours each time.

Viewing / trial possible: Yes.
Location: About 30 miles NW of Philadelphia.
Tuners: Nicolo Alessi - style 11 with Hauser-shaped side-plates with snakewood inlay and snakewood buttons.

Selling this guitar is simply an attempt to downsize my collection. Thanks.

As a player of Ligier I can't recommend his guitars enough. It's one of the few guitars that you can crave to play when you've been away from it for a few hours. Truly incredible work going on with these instruments.

Beautiful instrument...I'll keep an eye on it just in case you decide to make a price drop.
Good luck with the sale...my true feelings are you should keep it...may be difficult to replace such a fine guitar.

Thanks. Funny you should say this because I was recently telling a friend that I was thinking of selling this guitar but I was also telling him that I really liked it. He suggested I keep it too. Bottomline is that I would like to sell a couple of guitars, I really just have too many guitars. We will see how it goes with this one. Thanks.

That's what happens... and then there was a reason why you got this guitar in first place, and it becomes difficult to part ways with them ... but the "too many aspect" remains as well.
Music is a big continent with different landscapes and corners. Some of them I do visit frequently, some from time to time and some I know from hearsay only ...
