Important sale information
All lots are sold subject to our standard buyers terms and conditions. Please note comments on condition and originality are for general guidance and our opinion only. Buyers must satisfy themselves with the originality and condition of all lots before making any kind of bid.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING CITES RESTRICTIONS: Some guitars within this auction are sold with CITES article 10 certificates, allowing the commercial use of an item containing an endangered species. Lots subject to this are marked in the catalogue.
Please also note that as of 2nd January 2017, new laws came into effect to control the import and export of all items made with rosewood. Any guitar containing any amount of rosewood will therefore be subject to restrictions when exporting outside of the EU. It will be the buyers responsibility to make sure that the relevant paperwork is in place before shipping.
