Dayton, OH


This is an early example of Joshia’s work. Note that she didn’t have her own labels printed yet in 1996, so she signed one of her father’s (Sergei De Jonge)! (Sergei oversaw her building of this guitar, and probably had a hand in its construction).

The sound is that of a lattice-braced instrument but—surprise!—it’s actually fan braced. It features superb, concert level volume, tone, and playability.

The frets could stand to have their ends rounded (a $40 job by a luthier, or do it yourself) due to minute fretboard shrinkage over the years…not essential, however, as she plays just fine. I’m just being perfectionistic in my picky description here. Structurally like new, she has a few minor top dings and light scratches from playing use, but the finish is a light lacquer—so not to worry.

This is the second Joshia that has passed through my hands. They are very compelling instruments. Alas, I cannot afford to keep her…

Joshia works for her father's guitar-making course and has two young sons, hence makes only three guitars per year. Her new instruments cost $11,000.

This guitar is for sale at only $4,200 (domestic shipping included). Contact me for an international shipping quote to your destination.

Sale price includes a black BAM 8002XL Hightech Case (with one minor ding)…a $700+ value alone.

PayPal gladly accepted.

Cheers,

David

Thanks, George.

The first buyer never came through with payment.

I need to cash this out, so I've reduced the price by a third.

Cheers,

David
