Jim Merrill C-28 BRW-AD 2008

 Jim Merrill is a legendary luthier especially known to a small international inner crowd. Most of you have probably never heard the name, but if you think in line of Franklin, Blazer & Henkes or for instance Wayne Henderson, then you get a vague Idea of what I'm talking about. His guitar are way above the usual.  The best boy of the class, the ultimate Flattop, Jim makes a most wonderful interpretation of the 1930s steel string flattop, and C-28 is truly an amazing machine. It stood up against all our exceptional guitars, and it feels like having total control over all strings. On top of that it’s exceptionally resonant and complex sounding with great depth, harmonically rich and complex with lots of sustain and seemingly unlimited headroom with a powerful explosion of tones when strummed hard. This “C28” is likely one of the best flattops -vintage or new- you can find on this planet. I know, many superlatives, but wait till you play it, and tell me what you think..  If we are not among the most trusted authorities in fine acoustic guitars in your book yet, we invite you to come over and try out the guitar and hopefully agree with us. My personal statement, This guitar astonished us with its extremely full explosive sound and balance, effortless playing comfort and amazing tone and projection. 645mm or 25.4" scale length, 43mm o 1 11/16" nut width, 58.5mm or 2 5/16" stringspacing, very modest v almost a C shape neck of moderate profile,  and what a beautiful understated guitar it is.. ! Includes luxurious Ameritage Merrill case and is in excellent condition, looks near mint except for some pickmarks under the pickguard. CITES included.
