Anyone in the market for a good affordable dreadnaught? Then look no further. I'd happily keep playing this but I've just bought a swanky new acoustic so this is surplus to requirements. The usual specs: solid spruce top (taking on a nice amber hue); mahogany back and sides; mahogany neck; rosewood fingerboard; smooth Grover-type tuners. Actual bone nut and saddle. I've swapped the old pickguard for a nice tortoise one and fitted some ebony bridge pins when I changed the strings the other day. Sounds bloody good and plays very nicely indeed.

The guitar is in as-new condition, not a mark on it. Comes in a nice, as-new padded gig-bag–type thing too.

Now $250 shipped and a tenner donated to the forum.

You got the Sigma?
That should be a great guitar. I had to mention it here to stop myself buying it.
Plan on owning it when you're 60. You will be well rewarded. :thumbup:

I did indeed! Had to fend off a few last-minute bidders but still got it for a great price, I think. Seller's even offered to cover half the shipping. :thumbup:

It does look like a 'forever guitar'. Internet reckons only ~150 were built. :shock:

I know I seem to sell a lot of gear, but I do have several guitars that I plan on owning when I’m 60.

I'm surprised Slowy didn't pull me up on that fact that this is just next year for me. :lol: Whereas I think it will be several decades for young twangnsnarl.

Low hanging fruit Conway.
Besides, friends don't remind friends they're turning 60.
