CastroCastro Frets: 122
edited June 21 in Acoustics £

Save more than 60% on new price.

It's a little stunner from genius Marc Beneteau. Marc has a waiting list of 3 years+ and a base price of $7,000. His guitars are used by Don Ross and Tony McManus.

This remarkable, completely handmade masterpiece can be quiet or loud, has a K&K Mini pickup fitted which sounds extremely natural - more like a microphone than a piezo - is great for singer/songwriters, folk, blues, ragtime, general strumming and fingerpicking. It can do drop D and DADGAD quite happily. The only thing it doesn't do well is very low dropped tunings.

It comes with a lovely ivory Hiscox Pro case with the snuggest fit possible; no movement at all once the guitar is put to bed.

It's in fantastic condition so come to Chippenham, Swindon or Hungerford and try it - you'll love it.

Definitely no trades for another acoustic as I have too many. A Custom Shop Strat' or Tele' may tempt me or something else boutique such as a Novo, Echopark, Asher, Xotic.
