Selling on commission for a customer, who is a long-established Freelance Musician, Guitarist & Tutor of Guitar & other Stringed Instruments.

Over the years Stonebridge Guitars have established an enviable reputation for high quality, as the Brand name aimed at the US & UK markets for the instruments from the Czech guitar builder, Frantisek Furch, which had already established a strong European market, since 1981.

Here is your opportunity to find a lightly used example of the Vintage Series Dreadnought DS-32-SM model at a considerable saving on the new list price of 1,785, which does not include the added value of the installed L R Baggs pickup, understood to be an Element Active System.

Condition
My customer is a professional guitarist & tutor. I understand that he bought the guitar new...the maker's label is dated 2009. It has had relatively light use since then, and is in good condition. The few small marks on the guitar are very minor & superficial. It has been upgraded with the installation of the L R Baggs pickup system...the battery is still operating the electronics, but may now require replacement.
Action, strings & cases
The guitar setup has been checked by the luthier I work with and has excellent action of around 2mm./2.5mm. at the 12th fret. Phosphor Bronze strings currently fitted appear to measure as Light gauge 12-53.

Westfield Hardshell Case, with black interior lining, keys and trussrod wrench, is included.
