There's a 9 year old mahogany Harlow on ebay right now with an opening bid of $2500. http://tinyurl.com/qzya8y
In my opinion, a bit overpriced for a 9-year-old guitar. I picked up a 2002 Jumbo cherry Harlow for $2200 last year that was in fantastic condition.
Excuse me, but, that guitar looks pretty dadgum good, maybe some close up shots would be worthwhile.
Yes Phil, it is a fine looking instrument. I just feel that a starting bid of $2500 (1 bid placed and reserve not met) is a bit high for a 9 year Harlow guitar. Of course someone else's mileage may vary.
Preston, if I catch your drift, and I think I do; yes it would. Of course, being the scum-sucking bottom feeder that I am, I really can't blame anybody for trying to maximize their profits.
I would be interested in that guitar but unfortunately the seller offers shipment only within US.
Thanks for your kind offer - I really appreciate it !!! So let's see how the Ebay auction turns out..........
I have now asked the seller about his reserve price. If it's too high I'll better stop bidding................
The seller just answered. He didn't tell me exactly the price but mentioned that it is beyond 3.000 USD. I replied: "good luck with the auction" !
Jumbo price for a non-jumbo guitar. In the immortal words of Jerry Seinfeld, "Good luck with all that."
To my ear the best sounding Harlow I've ever played was not a Jumbo.
I can't speak for the Harlow standard body, but I agree Michael, there are many aural qualities to admire in the standard body guitar.
