Well, here is a guitar that I never in a million years thought that I would sell but my shoulder just won’t let me keep playing a jumbo as my main instrument. I am therefore listing this holy grail 2018 James Goodall Brazilian Rosewood/Master Italian Spruce Jumbo. It physically pains me to let this guitar go but it also physically pains me to play for long periods of time so I’m forced to say goodbye. This guitar was purchased as a custom order through SoundPure in Durham, NC in June of 2018 and I received the guitar in September of that year. I have been the sole owner of this guitar and it has been kept in a humidity and temperature-controlled environment for the entire duration of its short life. Almost everything about the guitar was upgraded (tone woods, Brazilian rosewood headstock overlay, premium green paua rosette and “flying G”, fossilized walrus ivory nut/saddle, etc.) and this was the last set of jumbo-sized Brazilian rosewood that James had available. This guitar listed for almost $16k new and the price would be even higher today and that is assuming James is able to find more Brazilian in this size. This guitar is truly a sonic marvel with thunderous bass but incredible note separation. You can really drive it or play it with a light touch and get incredible response either way. You will not find a finer Jumbo guitar anywhere. 

As far as condition, the guitar is near mint except for two minor indentions on the treble side lower bout. These are almost impossible to photograph but I did my best…see just at the end of my finger in images. These are very difficult to see and I never noticed them prior to doing a serious evaluation of the guitar for this listing (and I play it all the time). Anything else showing up in the photos is dust/reflection. There is no appreciable fret wear. Comes with original Ameritage case with Goodall logo.
