Purchased new from Armin Kelly at Guitars International in 2006, this instrument was played regularly by a graduate student at the University of Akron throughout a Master's Degree Program and into an early performance career. The guitar shows numerous, minor scratches and bumps on the front from regular playing use, and the French Polish of shellac finish is somewhat cloudy on the rear from use.

While the guitar is perfectly fine as is, an investment of $400-$500 for a refresh of the French Polish would restore it to like-new condition if the new owner so desires. However, the current blemishes cannot be seen from two feet away.

Superb, concert level volume, tone, and playability.

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. The twin to this guitar, #41, is for sale presently at Trilogy for $10,500.

This guitar is for sale at only $5,250 (domestic shipping included). I am merely looking to recoup my investment. I had never played a lattice braced instrument and wanted to give this one a try. It’s an amazing guitar, just not what my “traditional” ears are used to hearing. And it’s far too powerful for my bedroom, which is the only venue suitable for my playing skills!

With a Calton case, Rodgers tuning machines, German Spruce and BRW, it sounds like a smashing good deal.

French polish is easily touched up. Snap it up, someone please because it is tempting me.
