About This Listing

Up for sale is Westville guitar's Aruba Crest model. Comes with a hardshell case custom-made for this guitar (which I bought separately for $200).

More about this guitar: westvilleguitars.com/aruba-crest

This guitar is a version with Westville's "Crest" pickup -- which was designed after Charlie Christian pickups. It has that classic warm, clean tone heavy on the lower-mids.

I got this guitar, new, directly from Walkin', the Tokyo store that designed/produces the Westville line. Bought it in October in a pandemic-fueled gear-acquisition binge. (I'm now letting go of this and a bunch of other items to thin the herd...) I've babied this guitar and played gently only at home, so no fret wear or any nicks/scratches. Since I only played finger style on this guitar, you wouldn't even find any wear on its clear pickguard. It's in an immaculate, like-new condition.

Please note: With my iphone, I struggled to capture the color of the finish. The blonde finish is much darker, with more orange hues to it than in the pictures. The last pic (one showing the case) is probably the closest to its true color -- but still a tad bit more orange-y than it appears in that pic.

At today's exchange rate, this guitar goes for about $4,400 new, with the hardshell case and a shipping fee and import duties costing $500+ more.

I'm selling this item "As-Described" to avoid the hassle of returns, etc., at the whim of the buyer's mood/change of heart -- but, of course, I'll accept returns if it's damaged or its condition differs from my descriptions or pictures on this page.

I'm keeping the price as low as I'm willing to go, so no offers, please.

Thanks for looking.
