Left-Handed Fletcher Tenor Guitar for sale, hand-made by Jamie Dugan

Fletcher tenor guitar for sale
For sale is my 2012 Left-Handed Fletcher JD1 Mahogany tenor guitar.  Hand made by Jamie Dugan in Ithaca, NY.  

This finely crafted instrument is in very good condition with little or no wear and tear.  It cost over $2,000 new.  I'd like to get at least $1,200 for it to cover the cost of my next indulgence - which will be an electric mandolin.  Make me an offer!  Shipping will probably be around $60 to $80 - US buyers only.

Although this 4-string tenor guitar was made to be left-handed, the symmetrical design means that the "right" buyer could easily convert it to right-handed, if desired.  (Note: in that case one of the strap buttons would be on the wrong side for a right-hander).

I will include the hardshell case it came with AND a custom fit Blue Heron soft case/gig bag ($200 value) that I special ordered.  I tune this tenor guitar GDAE one octave lower than a mandolin but you can use a variety of tunings.
