Checking interest.

I have a Blackbird Savoy with Mi-Si and original gigbag that I'd be open to re-homing if somebody is interested. It's in excellent condition. $2,100 shipped CONUS.

This is a really great guitar. I love its tone, comfortable shape and excellent playability. That fact that it is super durable is an added bonus. While I'm pretty sure I'll want to replace it in time, I do want to experience a lot of different guitars as part of my learning journey.

I did a similar thing with ukes. Six years in and I've owned more than 60 ukes so far (and currently have 9). I need to be more disciplined with guitars or I'll end up divorced. As I'm really fond of my wife, that's not so appealing. LOL. So, in order for me to try something else I need to sell what I have.

The Savoy is shown here with my Blackbird Farallon tenor uke:

Those of you not familiar with the Blackbird Savoy, its unique body shape makes it feel like a 3/4 size guitar, but it has very full tone and rivals even the best guitars. You'll find that the reviews on it are extremely positive.
