I purchased this guitar in about March of this year with aspirations to really work on my Classical Guitar and sadly, that didn't pan out. I've decided to switch instruments and so my guitar has to go.
Here is the thread with the pictures, a video of the previous owner playing it, and the original transaction conversation.

I haven't had it long and all of the good information that the previous seller had posted about it is still valid so you can read the other thread and see images of the guitar and read about it.
It's a really nice guitar if a big of an ugly duckling; it has some minor dings and stuff but nothing that I didn't get used to. If you value exceptional sound over looks, then this is a great buy. It's strong suit is that it's got a real thin, Luthier-made-top that's very lively. It plays and sounds like a custom guitar without the price tag.
I guess shipping will be $100.00 or so to the ConUS. I won't ship to Hawaii, sorry. It will come with a really nice case, a clip on tuner, and about a dozen sets of strings, along with a rest and anything else I can't remember. I've kept it in the case with a D'Addario HumiPack and case hydrogmeter the entire time; at 50% humidity.
