    2002 Doolin Custom Classical Guitar

    I am not interested in trades....reducing my instrument collection.

    In 2002, I commissioned this beautiful guitar with Mike Doolin of Portland, Oregon. It is a very unusual double cutaway medium jumbo, called, “Sarah K.”, finished August, 2002. It was restrung and set up January 10, 2018. It has remained virtually unplayed since the setup.

    Mike’s guitars are superbly crafted, sound wonderful, and are hard to find.

    Here are the specs.


    Ebony fingerboard
    Ebony headstock facings, front and back
    Ebony overlay on heel cap
    Hand carved Ebony tuner buttons
    Abalone side dots
    Tusq nut
    Width at nut = 2 1/8”
    Width at 12th fret = 2 3/8”
    25 ½” scale
    Bolt on construction accessible at inside heel


    Back and sides are Black Walnut
    Top is natural fallen, old growth Redwood….very tight grain
    Rosette is Spalted Maple
    Five layer binding on entire body with the predominant material being Ebony
    Ebony insert at the butt
    Transparent scratch plate
    Ever so slight forearm cutaway
    16” wide at lower bought
    4 5/8” thick


    Spalted Maple inlay with Tusq
    Tusq saddle

    Electronics: B Band piezo

    Case: Canadian made, custom fit TKL tweed

    This guitar, although 16 ½ years old, is in flawless condition. I have only played it at home in my music room. It has lived its entire life in my year round climate controlled music room where I maintain temperature between 68 and 72 degrees and the humidity at 40 - 45 percent.

    The case is flawless except for a small blemish on the handle.

    Price is $ 6,200.00, shipped, insured CONUS. I only accept PayPal for payment, and will only ship to a PayPal registered and verified address. I will ship the next business day after payment in full.

    It is better if you message me on this forum with questions. I don't check the thread every day, but check for messages several times a day, so if you message me I typically can respond within a couple of hours.

    Thanks for looking at my Doolin.
