For Sale

From Keith Watson…..
Malcolm Brooks' last guitar, left unfinished by him in 2002 and finished by Dave Gregory in early 2016.

Top - Spruce
Back and Sides - Flamed Maple
Fretboard - Mahogany
Machine Heads - Schaller

An unusual feature of this instrument is that the neck may be removed to enable minor adjustments to the action if needed.
I suggest a price of £2000.

Best wishes

From Susan Kirby…..
This is an enquiry to find out whether you could help me to sell some classical guitars?
I have in my possession, 4 guitars of which three are good instruments. I enclose some details to enable you to give me some idea of whether or not they could easily be sold. The valuations were for insurance purposes. Three of the valuations were prepared by Peter Barton, a luthier based in Ilkley (in 2009).

1. Peter Barton handmade concert classical guitar in spruce and Indian rosewood, fitted with Sloane machineheads and including case:
Replacement valuation for insurance purposes (as at Sept 2009) £4,500.
Price paid in 2009: £2,165.
2. Montero y Bellido, Spanish classical guitar (made before the two makers split up), including case -
Replacement valuation from Peter Barton, Sept 2009. £8,000 (due to the rarity of such an instrument). This is probably the best of the guitars; it has a sweet, rich tone.
3. Amalio Burget. Indian rosewood and cedar classical guitar, including case. No valuation given but estimated value between £700 - £1,200.
4. The 4th guitar is probably a student model. I think it is Japanese.

If possible could you please send me your opinion from these descriptions and if you would like to see them, I would be happy to travel to York with them.

Yours sincerely,
Susan Kirby

From John Wright…..

Asturias Standard (Short) guitar
I am not a member of your Society but I am wondering if anybody would be interested in purchasing my guitar. I have played for a number of years but have had to stop due to arthritis in my hands. I purchased the guitar new in October 2006 for £1,200 from the Classical Guitar Centre (Birmingham).
It's specifications are hand crafted - scale length 63mm - solid cedar top - back & side Indian rosewood - neck Honduras mahogany - fingerboard Indian rosewood. My asking price is £600 and if anyone is interested I can be contacted at or by phone of 01723 370532.
I live in Scarborough but can come to York during the day if convenient. If you can put this on your board I would be most grateful. Thanks.
