David Flammang's take on a classic. Faithfully following the specs of a Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe, the Flammang RS is a super guitar. I owned both the original Smeck and this one. There was no discernible difference in tone, but the Flammang was easier to play. This guitar was slated to be an RS "35" (sunburst)- and labeled as such- but was never sprayed. So technically, it's a "30". It looks NEW.
24.75 scale. 1 3/4" nut, 2 5/16" spacing at saddle.

Waverlies, frets like new, almost new TKL 12-fret case.
Shines as a finger-picker or with flat-pick. Loud, but full of tone. And David's impeccable workmanship. Asking $3200 plus shipping and paypal. Shown with an original "Smeck" (burst)
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.
