This guitar was ordered brand new back in 2011. It arrived damaged. There was a crack about 2mm deep at the back of the neck where the neck meets the heel. This was due to the package being dropped on it's end by the carrier. Instead of going through the hassle of going through the return and claims procedure, I decided to repair the guitar and keep it. The repair is sound and it is the only cosmetic issue this guitar has. Other than that, it is in mint condition as I have been the only owner and it has been very well cared for. At this point, I really have no need for another personal guitar so I have decided to sell it at a very good price for this top of the line instrument. This is one of the last models the Hermanos made under the F Extra name before changing the name of their top model to the 1F Extra. A new model will cost about $4000.00. Here is an opportunity to get one in mint condition at a great price. It has excellent volume and projection.
