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. $1150 plus shipping of your choice. In my opinion this guitar outshines any Martin, Taylor or Gibson I have played costing much more.


Many more pictures. Please call or email.

Hi Mike - You might want to take some pictures and post this on eBay. You'll have a much broader audience there. Good luck - looks like a nice guitar!

Hey thanks for the thought. Trying to avoid all those fees but you could have a point there. As good as these hand crafted guitars are, they are not very well known outside of Albequerque, apparently.

Last chance folks, at $950, before I close the thread.

Thanks everyone for looking.

I wish there was easier access to photos. If you look at other threads in the marketplace, you might notice that people post photos in the thread itself. Some people might search around for photos, but most won't, and you lose potential buyers who might have been interested if they'd seen the guitar just by opening the thread. Good luck with your sale!
