Jerry lent me his beautiful and well-maintained Guild 12-string. I have never played a twelve-stringed guitar that stayed in tune so well, and the instrument's strings seemed fresh, clear, and had a wonderfully bright sound. The notes in the lower register sounded just transcendent, while the higher strings still had a clarity to them that is often lacking on twelve-stringed guitars. The guitar came in a durable hard-shell case in which Jerry also keeps a humidity meter.
Jerry was very easy to work with and although I ended up picking the instrument up and dropping it off at his office in downtown Boston, he expressed a willingness to make other arrangements work as well. He was very friendly and made himself available during the limited time frame at which I could collect and return the guitar.
I would recommend this guitar and Jerry S. as a seller to anyone who might be in need of this sort of instrument for a gig, session, or just to play around with for an evening.
Great transaction. Jerry was prompt and delivered the guitar in excellent condition, including being perfectly in tune. I thoroughly enjoyed playing the Guild 12 String. Low action, with a huge, booming sound. I highly recommend this guitar and this owner. Two thumbs up.
