Exhibition Instrument, 2009
This guitar was built for showcasing my work at exhibitions, and it is currently on display at my storefront in Winnipeg. An extensive collection of pictures is to be found at the very bottom of this page.

An exhibition instrument generally has some minor wear on the finish, which will however be refurbished. Some small traces may remain. Also, the entire string setup will be reviewed before shipping, so that the playability of this guitar is equal to that of a new instrument.
I can perform minor tailoring to the buyer’s needs before shipping, such as adjusting the action at a desired height or changing the string spacing at the nut. If any questions remain, please send me an email or call me at +1 (204) 869-0607.
