This is probably the best sounding guitar that I have ever heard. The value of these continues to go up with the passing of Lorenzo Pimentel. His sons continue to run this Albuquerque based company known for its high quality hand crafted guitars. I have owned this guitar since new and the tone has only gotten better over the years. Originally finished in lacquer it was recently refinished using several coats of high quality varnish which has improved tone, if such a thing is possible. Follow the below links for a 2005 review at Harmony Central and a 2005 price list showing $1800 new for this model. Outstanding condition: not a flaw, ding or scratch on it. $1300 shipped to your door! (lower 48) In my opinion this guitar outshines any Martin, Taylor or Gibson I have played costing much more.
