2002 Gary Garcia Walnut Dreadnought Acoustic Electric Guitar #19

I purchased the Gary Garcia CA made acoustic guitar, which was Gary’s demo guitar (the 19th guitar Gary had built) at the Father’s Day Bluegrass festival June 2005. It was built in 2002 and is in very good condition.

The top is Engelmann Spruce, the back and sides are Black Walnut, the binding is a Madagascar Rosewood, and the neck is Honduran Mahogany with a maple accent. It is just a real beauty to look, is very comfortable to play and the tones are equal to a high end Taylor or Martin with well-balanced high and low end tones. This is a fine example of Gary's craftsmanship.

The guitar is in very good condition with no breaks or issues. It has normal minor dings and scratches that you expect from a 22 year old guitar that was played regularly. There is also some belt rash on the back. A picture shows a line in the back of the upper bout. It is a small finish crack but not a wood crack that my Luthier verified (04 18 2024) and is not an issue. All things considered, it is still a beautiful guitar.

The guitar did not have active electronics when I purchased it, so I had a LR Baggs iBeam active electronics professionally installed in 2007.

I added a John Pearse armrest on it. I have been using these for years, they keep sweat off the guitar body, and add comfort to the strumming arm with no impact to the sound or tone. Included with the Garcia guitar and Gator case, is a strap, a set of new strings, and some paperwork related to the guitar.

I had some maintenance done to it in 2021 including a neck reset, new saddle, and even the fret crowns sharp edges smoothed out. The total was $580, but it plays wonderfully now.

I recently retired and have decided to sell most of my guitars over the next few years as I have collected quite a few gems over the last 35 years. I must admit, it is a hard habit to break, but mainly playing for my own pleasure these days, as my band days are over.

Gary’s guitars are unique in woods used, detail, style, tone and quality. Gary pays great attention to the details and tones of his guitars. It has been a privilege to own this guitar. Check out is Facebook following at Garcia Guitars Owners Group, you can read and see examples of his guitars.

I have sold over 300 guitars, amps & PA equipment on e-Bay and Craigslist and all of my buyers are happy with their purchases. I want my buyers to be as happy with their purchase as I was when I purchased it. You won't be disappointed.
No returns after sale and pick up of item. Cash only, no trades and price is firm. I will provide you with a sales receipt.

Attention Scammers - Please do not bother contacting me. I know most of your tricks. This is only a face to face meeting with cash to pay for the item. No shipping or 3rd party pickup schemes. This gets tiring and is a waste of both of our time.

Contact me via Craigslist.


Thanks for looking.
