Trade value is $5500. I'm looking for comparably priced higher end guitars or combination of guitar and cash deal. I need the guitar that you trade to be in excellent condition and a model that I can sell . I am not interested in guitars that are so unique that it will be hard for me to sell.
You can hear an example of a standard Cedar topped guitar at Dake Draphagen's website: http://www.traphagenguitars.com/guitars/standard\_cedar\_b.html
I have posted the story as to how I came about purchasing this guitar from Mr. Traphagen and how little it has been played:
The guitar was originally purchased for my son who play it only a few times when taking lessons from Joanne Castellani just prior to him leaving for music academy and then conservatory with out the guitar.I have been the caretaker of the guitar ever since. I am a guitar player but not a classical guitar player so I have not played this guitar. It has been well cared for in my humidified home. I own over 40 guitars including 20 acoustics, but I'm not a classical player. I would love some one else to take possession of this fine instrument and play it.
I don't know that much about classical guitars other than what I have posted here. If you have additional questions please feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer. I am an honest seller and do not miss-represent instruments. My ebay name is drtomstew and I have an positive rating of over 700;please check out my feedback. Also check out the 48 hour approval I am offering. The guitar is in excellent plus condition and comes with its original case. The top of guitar is French polished whish is now somewhat dulled. This is not unusual for this type of finish. I will let you re-polish the finish.
