(Revised) Selling Cedar Bronze
« on: January 15, 2008, 03:54:06 PM »


This guitar is well documented on this forum (photos and sound bite). Only issue was the misaligned back plate screw and I had that fixed by one of the top luthiers in the area (Phil Jacoby).  I put some custom wood knobs on, but can replace them with the standard ones. All the paperwork (including warranty card) and tools are included.

 The guitar deserves to be played and not just sit in the closet. (In fact, I would say it MUST be played – old Martins sound better for a reason – maybe they were made better, but playing breaks down the resins in the wood leading to a better tone. This guitar sounds great, but over time, I expect it to be even better.) A classically trained guitarist friend or mine with prefect pitch (yup, one of those guys;-) says there are no bad notes on this guitar. Not to mention it only weighs three and half pounds.

(NEW) I'm going to put it on eBay, and if it sells, then I'll go the custom route (like Dayn), if not, I'll try the NewTone light string and if the tone remains the same, I may go and put the RMC in this one and forget the custom idea (tone trumps color -- right?) Anyway, I figured I'd give the forum first shot at the reduced price (and thanks for the inputs.)

(NEW) Asking $2400 (that includes insured shipping).

Charlie, sorry to hear of your challenges! [:(] Your Bronze Fly is purdy, purdy, purdy! I'd love to have her. I'd put an RMC in and play her til her neck fell off or my heart gave out! We all know which one will go first! Goodluck on your sale!!! [;)]

Yeah -- I thought about that (the RMC mod). Maybe I could go to lighter strings and still retain the sound (RMC through Fishman two-stage preamp....hmmmmmm.....anyone tried this?)

You could try a set of these:

Might do the trick, and the guitar is beautiful.

Charlie, you may want to email Dayn. He has some information that may be useful to you!  [;)]

Hi cigarlie.  Saw your ebay ad and traced you back to this page! I am new to Parkers, and live in London, UK. Very interested in your cedar, however, how would you feel about doing a transatlantic transacation? I am sure we would be able to reach some agreement.... just out of interest, what is it about the sound that you dont like?

Charlie - sent two messages to the 2 emails you gave me.  If you haven't seen them, check your filters.  Sorry we're having such a hard time connecting.

Nothing -- I love the sound. It's the "player" that is the problem -- with my hand problems I'm just not playing it enough -- if it doesn't sell, may try Dana'a suggestion for those NewTone strings.
