Description: Acoustic Guitar - 1998 cedar Gernot Wagner
This 1998 Wagner is a very powerful cedar topped guitar with what appears to be Brazilian rosewood back and sides (there is some beautiful sapwood figuration in the back). The condition is great, with very little playing wear. There is one small (and expertly repaired) crack in the top, but it's stable and has not affected the tone, volume, or playability. You have to look pretty hard at an angle to notice it. The basses are deep and the trebles are lyrical, full, round, and dark. This is a very nice guitar by a maker whose double top model is currently advertised for $20,000 at Gernot's US distributor. There is a guitar much like this one (same model but with a spruce top) currently being sold by the same dealer for $12,500. I'm willing to let this one go for much less. With the guitar comes a custom built Presto case made to fit this guitar. In case you're not familiar with Presto cases, they're very strong (almost like a Calton) but also very light. I believe Simon Marty used to ship his guitars with Prestos. It appears that the NetInstruments messaging system is not working (for me at least) so please contact me directly via email.
