Description: Acoustic Guitar - Hippner 8-string, Englemann
I am selling two of my four Hippner 8-string guitars, unfortunately because of family medical and dental bills not fully covered by insurance.
This one is Englemann Spruce/Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck, one piece Ceylonese Ebony fretboard, Gilbert tuning gears. 652mm. Wooly mammoth ivory saddle, cow bone nut. Hauser type. Top: French polished, Back and Sides: lacquer. 2 Ruck style soundports.
Excellent condition, no cracks. Light nail scratching on soundboard below the first string but not much. You can feel a little of the glue along back seam, I never bothered to sand it down.
$3500, firm. Comes with Guardian Feather Weight weather-proofed case.
I will allow 48 hour trial if you pay roundtrip shipping.
