-replacement cost for this guitar, with the amazing Brazilian and other

Condition: Carefully maintained and handled, always cased and humidified. Near mint condition. Best described as 9.8+/10 condition with only issue being some very light scratches where pick guard would be. Hard to see unless you tilt the guitar to see in light. Case is in 9.8/10 condition

This instrument is made from superb old growth Brazilian rosewood with a gorgeous, aged Vintage Series Adirondack top, slotted headstock, pyramid bridge and was built by one of the top custom builders. With the 1 13/16" nut width, cutaway with 12 frets to the neck, this guitar is really fun to play. It is set up perfectly with low action and great feel. The neck is a modern C shape. Put all this with the slightly more shallow depth of a 000 and you have a homerun!

The McAlister tone is vintage sounding with a notable and likable chime to it. This is really a cool guitar. I've owned it twice, but am trying to whittle down from 27 to under 20. At 24 and whittling for your pleasure!
