I had David Flammang build this guitar for me. Adirondack over African Blackwood. It is David's take on a Gibson Advanced Jumbo from the '30s. By far, the most voice I have ever played. There is no "top" to it. But, it can be fingerpicked softly and heard across the room. This is a "one & only". He hasn't built another one and felt it was a sensational guitar. 1 3/4" nut. ABW fretboard and bridge. The wood "chimes" like nothing else- the reason it's used in high-end woodwinds and (gasp) bagpipes.
David's "zipper" purfling and sound hole ring, and gorgeous burst.
Has not been played much- I feel it's not completely opened-up yet. I hate to part with it, but it needs to be played and I figure I leave it pristine for the next owner.
A beauty to behold. A beast to hold! Sensational sound, playability, and David's impeccable workmanship. In a custom Cedar Creek case. $6500
All purchases are to be made in full before shipment of the instrument. PayPal is most desirable and the 3% fee is absorbed by the purchaser, unless other arrangements have been made. I do not accept payments via "friends & family" on PayPal. Plus the buyer forsakes all protection PayPall offers when doing so. Personal checks, Bank Cheques must clear my bank before shipment. It is sometimes possible to wire direct deposits which are safe and immediate.
Shipping is on an "on-case" basis. Usually adds will read "plus shipping" which means it is the buyer's responsibility to pay for shipping to the purchaser , and back to me if there is a return. It is to be discussed and a mutual agreement will dictate "who pays what".
There is aways a 72hr "approval period". The period begins the end-of-the-day 11:59 p.m. of the day the shipper indicates delivery. This should allow time for the instrument to "acclimate" to its new surroundings. Please make sure you do not open the packaged instrument when it arrives in winter UNTIL it has come up to room temperature. If opened to soon, lacquer checking may occur and perhaps worse.
