This series of guitars is a collaborative effort between master luthier Edmund Blochinger and Wolfgang Jellinghaus of the "Milestones" guitars which offer a variety of period-style replica guitars of iconic makers from the 18th and 19th centuries. Here is a review by "classicalguitarmagazine" on this series of guitars:

I am currently in China and I will be returning back to the UK on July the 16th, so that I when the guitar will be available for pick up. I bought this guitar from Siccas guitars in Germany and have kept it between 45%-55% RH as well as 18-24 degrees celsius for the past year. The guitar is virtually band new with no superficial markings or wear to the original French Polish. I had to also pay for shipping and taxes for the import, so I have lowered the price considerably.

The milestone guitars are a fantastic value! I own the La Cañada model 17 Torres made by milestone of music and I can vouch these guitars are amazing for the price. I was put off for a long time due to them being made in China but I couldn't resist and so happy i pulled the trigger.

I couldn't agree more, I had the same trepidation but it was well worth the purchase.

Reduced from 1800GBP to 1450GBP. I have all the original receipts and papers from Siccas Guitars.

Available for viewing/pickup in China (Tianjin until the 14th of July) or in England (after 17th of July).
I can ship to anywhere in the world.

Thanks again.

Reduction from 1800GBP to 1200GBP

All triple A woods/luthier built without a scratch on it.

I'm in need of the money so I've reduced the price a lot.

I just want to point out, that this is not a good way to string up a 12-hole bridge.

I was refraining from doing so while the sale was on. I hope the new owner strings it up properly and enjoys the instrument :chitarrista:
