Hello!
The guitar has recently come back from Mr Dean workshop for an action adjustment and bit of polishing, it's looking like new.
I'd like to put it back on sale, can we move the post to the on sale section?
:merci:

thank you!

I need this one to go relatively quickly hence dropping the price to 5000.
Can we please update the price in the title? :merci:

Not to sound impertinent but I think you might struggle to sell a £5k guitar without a case.

are you interested in buying it? then let's talk about it :)

I haven't been struggling to sell it.
Last time I had 4 people interested then I changed my mind in the end as I couldn't fine a good part-exchange.
If you know the luthier you know that 5000 is a fair price for an instrument of this level.

As most people will work out, a new Dean guitar (from e.g. Stafford Guitar) is about £8,000 ... and they don't have one in stock. The price seems a reasonable asking price. If I was thinking about buying this guitar (I'm not) the case would be pretty irrelevant. I gather that, even in the present market, guitars which stand out will still sell. Good luck with the sale. And with the deposit! :) Alex
Ana Maria Espinosa Rodriguez (2014) - loud, harp-like, complex. It sings.
Sacha Nowak (2017) - I've owned a few guitars in my time. This is the best.

As I got a few people interested, all from outside Europe.
I'd like to thank them for the interest they have shown and take the opportunity to let everyone know I wouldn't be able to apply for Cites certification, hence restricting the sale to Europe.

I'm going to include the case in the sale, it's a Bam hightech guitar case.
