Left Handed Foldable Travel Guitar AD-100

JUNE 2016. I am trying to get a left handed version made by the manufacturer of the AD100 Travel Guitar. This is a very cool fold-out guitar with a decent sound, made of aluminium and high quality electronics. It is made in China and retails for USD 700 (approx. $1000 Australian.) That’s for the right handed original.…

2016

FEBRUARY 2016. As you may know, I announced at the end of last year that I would not be taking any new orders for guitars.
