Yeah. The market has been really slow for the last 4 years. One major problem is there are so few of them that there is no real collectors market for them. I've seen a lot sit forever on Gbase.com at $1000+. The current market price for the acoustics are around $300 to $800 depending on condiction.

Hi Kim;

 

Glad it's sounding good, I bet it does. I like the headstock on it, it's really looking good with the strings and work you've put in to it.

 

I have a 40 year Grammer my self that I really like, I bought it in 1978, it was made in 1970.

Hey there Kim;

 

Wanted to welcome you the Small Body Guitar group.

 

I love the pictures of the Standel, just curious, are you going to restore it?

 

Thanks;

Gary
