Musician and fine guitar builder Jim Sullivan needs to
sell his guitar due to illness

My friend Jim has been having a VERY hard time focusing on healing the last couple of months or so because he and his family are quickly running out of money.

He needs to sell a very fine guitar he made. This has been his personal guitar for the last 7 years. It is very gently used and is in excellent shape, like new!

The hipshot tuner on the low E string, and the ebony buttons in the photos, have been removed. The buttons have been replaced with the original Schaller gold buttons. This SMSA-E features a western red cedar top w/ Australian blackwood back and sides.7pc laminated neck W/ purple heart center strips. Cocobolo binding, end wedge, heel cap and headstock laminate. Mitered purflings. Back center strip. Spalted maple rossette w/ abalone center. Abalone top purfling. Custom abalone fretboard markers. RMC electronics. Gold Schaller mini tuners. Will ship to USA only. See Guitar here

If you know of anyone that is looking for a very fine guitar please let them know about Jim Sullivan. - The Joys of playing a Jim Sullivan Guitar >> youtube.com/watch?v=iVUXtDymPTM
