This is a really nice one, but not for everyone.  Hard Core Traditional Music folks, for your consideration...

This is an extraordinary, "Regal made for Washburn", Indian rosewood, "X-braced" guitar. It's a 5257 "Solo." Its voice is dry, clear, warm and powerful. I bought it from a luthier that went over it from top to bottom to tighten and set it up. It's remarkable.

If you want to hear what guitar heaven sounds like, follow the link below.  Luthier Tony Klassen, who did the work on this beauty is playing it:

If you're a guitar collector or an "A-list" player looking for a fine-sounding, playable piece of exceptional history, here it is.

Admittedly, I'm not super excited about SHIPPING this guitar.  If you're in/near MPLS/St. Paul, I'd be delighted for you to come by and try it out.  Let's talk.
