How to get a lower price, instantly!

Why do we do this?

Some manufacturers have a "minimum advertised price", which restricts how low of a price we can display. By requesting an e-mail quote from us, you give us the ability to offer you a lower price than anywhere else on the web. A quote on the product will be sent instantly to the e-mail address you enter, and you can add the product to your cart at the lower price displayed in the e-mail.

What We Think

Masterful, artful work, from tailpiece to tuners.  Quite an opportunity here, folks!  While we've adjusted the price to account for wear and a couple repairs from our luthier, this instrument is as fit and happy for a lifetime of playing as it was when it left Bill Comins' workshop in '06.  An incredibly full, rich, dark voice springs to life, acoustically and amplified, from the first note.  There's a solid, worn-in feel to the playability that is downright encouraging for both right and left hands.  Mr. Comins' work rarely makes it to the used market, particularly not at this price--give us a call to take advantage of this incredible opportunity before someone else does!

 

Condition: Used, very good

Two crack repairs, blemishes and light playwear.

 

 

 

Manufacturer's Description from Comins Guitars

Hallmarks of Comins Guitars include precise setup work, comfortable feeling necks, a clear and round high end, punchy mids, and a “broken in” or “old wood” sound. Guided by the works of great makers past and present, Comins has devoted much attention to considering elements such as modeling and graduation of the arched plates, mass of individual components, sound-hole styling and placement, variables in geometric relationships, etc. This progression of fine-tuning has led to deep understanding of how components function in concert, and how they can be manipulated toward a desired result. What is learned from each newly created piece is brought to the next. Bill also attributes the success of his instruments to sensibilities acquired through his years of playing.
