My New Clinesmith

My Clinesmith Koa #169 arrived at my house yesterday morning and I took a few pictures a little while ago.  The pictures do not give her justice and she sounds even better than she looks.  Thanks for a beautiful guitar Todd.Smile

Here's a little clip I found from our last trip to CA.  We were playing on my favorite radio station in Northern Ca.  KPIG!  Too bad they only caught the last part of my solo.  Dominick played some heavy stuff right before I had a go of it.

Harper Koa Reso #14


I'm selling this beautiful Brad Harper made Koa reso #14. This thing is a hoss. It was my main guitar for a year and a half or so.

It has abalone fret inlay, and nice herringbone binding all around. The coverplate is like a gun metal finish.

It has a Schertler pickup installed and the Schertler preamp with it. It's in great shape with a few little dings from playing. There's

a small cosmetic flaw in the binding near the neck joint, and one of the Waverly tuners needs a new washer. Works fine though.

It has a new tweed case. $2000. Killer price for a guitar that sounds this good. I have more pix for anyone interested.
