Thanks for the friend invitation Alex.Italy is one of our favourite holiday destinations,where are you?
Yes I do sell my guitars my main outlet these days is an art gallery of all places,the owner is a good guitarist so he makes them sound much better than I can.
If you're interested in buying let me know and we can discuss the details.
