    Selling my ‘as new’ 2015 Morgan OMR. Having gone through a bunch of Larrivee's, Taylor's, Martin's, and handmade guitars like this one, I don't think acoustics are my thing. This one however is the cream of that crop and if I didn't want to raise money for another electric, I'd just keep it.

    Morgan guitars are handmade by David Iannone in North Vancouver, BC. The guitar is OM sized, beautifully balanced, and absolutely perfect for fingerstyle or strumming. It has master grade solid sitka spruce top with beautiful silking and solid Indian rosewood back and sides with incredible tight straight grain. The guitar has a one-piece neck made of South American mahogany and has engraved gotoh tuners.

    It has many high-end appointments such as beautiful flame maple binding on top and back, ebony bridge and headstock veneer, abalone rosette, Italian ivory bridge pins, and MOP/abalone headstock inlay and fret markers.

    It's in perfect condition save some light swirling. Zero fret wear, always kept humidified, no issues at all - it's not long left David's workshop.

    It's a stunning instrument at a great price. Priced at $2300 shipped CONUS & Canada. Guitar will ship in hardshell case.

    Trades added - Will consider trades for Gibson 336/356 (preferred option) or maybe a Fender Custom Shop Strat (Rosewood Board).

    Thanks Rockitman - they are superb guitars. At the price - for a handmade guitar from someone like David, they can't be beaten.

    My photos don't do it justice.

    Some nice trade offers but nothing that's stuck. Would prefer straight sale, however if you have something to trade similar to the options above, let me know.
