Breedlove Retro OM/ER
For a few years I've played a Martin 000-16GT and a Blueridge BR-73. Both were 1-11/16" at the nut and a little difficult to play due to my big paws. Thought I'd try a little wider neck as the one's I tried in local shops seemed to fit my hands better, but none of the guitars for sale at local shops "jumped" at me, so back in December I sold my Martin 000-16GT and used the money to buy a Recording King ROS 16 with a 1-13/16" nut (really like that guitar) and a Breedlove Retro OM/ER off the net, thinking it had a 1/3/4 neck like the Revival series. When I got it, I found it was 1-11/16 at the nut and like having a near twin to my spruce/rosewood Blueridge. Anyway, I put it on Craig's List a couple of weeks ago but haven't had any real serious inquiries yet.
The guitar is the same as brand new and I even have the factory shipping box. There isn't a blemish anywhere on the guitar or Breedlove hard case. I've started to play it a little lately and after only a few hours its beginning to open up and produce a nice sound. I'm asking $500 or work out a trade for another acoustic with a wider neck. Below is a link to my Craigs list ad.
Any one interested?
"If Einstein hadn't discovered the theory of relativity someone else would have because its a basic science truth. Same for Watson-Crick and DNA. But if Beethoven hadn't written "Moonlight Sonata", no one else would have. If Van Gogh hadn't painted Starry Night, no one else would have."
I don't want to play songs, I want to create songs.
