TAKAMINE Hirade H5 Nylon ACOUSTIC CLASSICAL GUITAR Pro Series Solid Cedar
2006 Giambattista G4C (Cedar top) classical guitar in flawless condition.
Purchased new at The Classical Guitar Store in Philadelphia, one of the most respected dealers of high end classical guitars in the USA. Google them - there's a lot about Giambattistas on their website...you'll find info in "guitars under $3,000" and also" what people say".
No marks or flaws that I can see, straight neck, perfect action, no fretwear. Both the guitar and Travelite case have never been out of my music room, making them both difficult to tell from new.
The Classical Guitar Store sells this model for $1850 plus the tax, and is the entry level model of world-class classical guitars made in Paris by a third-generation of Italian builders.
A move-up instrument in every way, for the serious student of classical guitar, who is not quite ready for a $3,000+ concert grade instrument. Play it once and you'll know how good it is...very strong bass, and ringing trebles.
I have played this guitar nearly every day since I've owned it, now I've decided to play only steel string acoustics with thumb/finger picks, due to my fingernail issues.
Beautiful straight grained solid cedar top, solid Indian Rosewood sides, I'm going to err on the conservative side and say that the back is probably laminated Rosewood, since the newer models of the G4 have gone to that configuration in recent years. This is totally not an issue with a classical guitar (it's more of a marketing issue with steel string guitars) John Williams has been playing a guitar with laminated back and sides for 20 years, and even Segovia played with a laminated back, cedar top instrument later in his career.
Ebony fretboard, bone nut and saddle, normal scale , gold plated Fuestro tuning machines. There is a professionally installed small side marker at the 7th fret, a very handy thing to have.
Included in the sale are three brand new sets of Savarez (Alliance regular tension carbon fiber trebles, Corum high tension basses) that sell for $20 a set.
If you have less than 5 feedbacks, or multiple negative feedback, please email before purchasing.
Guitar will be well packed, and will travel to you with a Dampit soundhole humidifier. Sorry, USA only, please don't ask. You will be charged actual shipping costs, not what's in the ebay calculator. Local pickup is welcome.
I reserve the right to cancel this ad (before any bidding takes place) since it is for sale elsewhere.
