Note: Would prefer not to ship at the current time but would be willing to hand deliver in the Maryland, DC, Southern PA, Northern VA, USA area. I'm located in Baltimore, MD.

For Sale is my beloved Asturias 'AST-60 Short' Classical Guitar (short scale with full-size body - not 7/8th size). I'm simply selling it because it should go to an owner that plays it more. This guitar got me into music school and would have gotten me through school if I hadn't changed my major .


These are known as a workhorse guitars aimed at the serious student or teacher and are a phenomenal value for the money. I have owned this guitar since around 1997. It has always been stored in its case, in a non-smoking household, and always humidified with a dampit (the upright bass sized one) during the winter when needed (I keep a hygrometer in the case to monitor humidity). I even warm up the car first if it's cold outside. This guitar has some minor wear due to its age (shown in pictures) and had a minor repair to the top (upper bass-side bout) that was done before my ownership (it appears that there was perhaps a scratch of some sort that was repaired very well but the finish tint was slightly off). The guitar plays very well and has a beautiful full darker round tone due to the solid cedar top. Note bloom is awesome. High quality hardshell TKL case included. I really don't want to ship this (it would crush me if this got damaged in shipment) so I would like to sell it relatively locally.
