As I said Dave, IF there is a problem it's easily sorted anyway. I know you, and know you wouldn't sell anything with an undisclosed issue. Martin style acoustics do normally have higher actions than Gibson style ones, the 'buyer beware' statements were definetely uncalled for.

Thanks John, Don't worry I'll get over it. This guitar had a normal action for the type of guitar. As a matter of fact I'd still buy it back for the ?246 he paid for it inc' shipping. I would NEVER sell something like this with an undiscolsed problem I was aware of. I don't need the money that badly!

Seller beware is more appropriaste in this case.

Rant over - hopefully but I doubt it.............

And just to be clear, you do not have a "huge problem" If the action is a bit high for your tastes it can fe fixed easily and cheaply

pm me your address Dave and I will pm you my paypal address.


Dave, if you've offered to buy back a guitar you sold over two years ago because someone has NOW decided to have a whinge about it just make sure it's exactly as it was when you sold it BEFORE you part with any cash. A couple of years in a hot, humid climate could be the casue of the 'problem'

95% relative humidity in Brisbane early 2008

I think this thread is in danger of turning into the Monty Python dead parrot sketch.

How many times do I have to say it, putting this right is a piece of cake and it'll be another 30 years before the guitar needs a neck reset. Could you post a pic from the same angle of the bridge?

Well Mick,

6 months before that it didn't look like that! Have you got something wedged under the other end? You can see from one of the pic's I took for you when it was sold that it wasn't like that. It was about 4 mm at most on the low E.

On looking at bit more grecoburst, your newly added picture has clearly been distorted. I saved a copy on my desk top and flatened it again. Can you post the whole pic showing both ends of the guitar?
