*Made for the owner by Boaz Elykman after they met in Antigua Guatemala when travelling central America in 1993. There was a small expat community where they were located and the seller was lucky to see Boaz play both nights at the Jazz Gruta. Boaz was heading to Mexico to make some guitars and the seller ordered a travelling guitar from him. The pair met up again in Vail Colorado where Boaz and his wife stayed for several weeks and delivered his guitar and case as well as giving him several lessons. The vendor then brought the guitar back to the UK where it has remained mostly unplayed ever since. The sale includes some handwritten musical notes from Boaz, as well as a copy of the flyer from the Jazz Gruta in Guatemala.
