1975 Di Giorgio Guitar For Sale

An individual has approached the society with an instrument for sale – a 1975 Di Giorgio Bel Son No. 36. We have no photos as the moment but it is a very similar instrument to the one in this link.

Here is the seller’s description:

“It is in a hard case and comes from a smoke free environment and it is in lovely order. The asking price is £600 and the reason for the sale is that it is no longer played, sadly.”

The guitar has been examined by a respected luthier and society member, and they have confirmed that the asking price is about right.

Anyone interested in more information should contact the secretary email address (secretary.cgsni (at) in the first instance.

Guitars for sale

A few individuals have contacted the society in the hope of selling guitars in their possession. Here is the description of the first:

“It is a Manuel Rodriguez Model FC Pro Classic Guitar in excellent condition and has been well looked after. Selling due to the fact my grandfather can no longer play it.

I have recently been in contact with a guitar dealer that was able to give me a used value price of £1050 but this is negotiable.”



The second has been offered by an aspiring luthier who is selling their concert instrument in order to pursue building guitars. His description is below:
“Please find attached photos of the guitar I have for sale. As stated this is a 1a Especial Doplo Tapa with a beautiful Brazillian rosewood back and doubled Brazillian sides. The spruce top gives fantastic seperation and at the same time a rich tone with plenty of sustain. The condition of this guitar is excellent with only minor play wear and some minor marks in the laquer. I am only asking £3500 gbp and I will pay shipping. Considering it is worth £5500-6500 in its current condition this is a bargain.”



If anyone is interested in these instruments please contact the society via our Facebook page or email secretary.guitar at gmail dot com.
