  • This guitar does sound awesome.

    Actually the video shows one of my sons plucking out a little Pink Floyd. If he or another one of my sons who plays very well could afford the guitar they would purchase it. Unfortunately it is being sold due to dyer need because of financial circumstances.

  • Beautiful, it bears a remarkable resemblance to my 1958 Martin 0017, I bet it sounds awesome.
