For sale is a fantastic Salvador Castillo spruce top 8-string Brahms guitar, made in 2013. The back and sides are some very attractive Palo Escrito that I selected from Salvador's stock. The instrument is entirely French polished.

The overall condition is very good. There are no structural issues. The only cosmetic issues are some cloudiness of the French polish on the back due to body heat, and some light nail marks in the French polish on the top. The instrument comes with a Palo Escrito endpin that Salvador made, which attaches to the butt of the guitar via a threaded bolt. I have rarely used it, and instead have used a magnetic Barnett support in a more traditional playing position.

Playability is great. I string it with a high tension Savarez Alliance set with Cantiga basses on the middle six strings, a Hannabach 815 SLT for the high A, and an Aranjuez bronze wound AR1007 for the 8th string (which I tune to either A or B, depending). The multiscale breakdown is as follows: string 1 615mm, string 2 620mm, string 3 625mm, string 4 630mm, string 5 635mm, string 6 640mm, string 7 645mm, string 8 650mm.

Schaller tuners, Hiscox Pro II case.

I am selling because I just cannot seem to adapt successfully enough to the 8-string terrain. I commissioned the instrument, so I've had three years to get used to it, but I am not satisfied with my progress. Nothing to do with the instrument itself, just my own ineptitude.
