    For sale is a 2017 Vandermeij Magistra Fanned Fret in Sparkle White

    Vandermeij Guitars is a boutique musical instrument company often associated with Aristides Instruments, with whom Koen Vandermeij has long since been an employee for. Vandermeij builds instruments with the modern guitarists in mind, focussing on a light weight (this one is nearing Parker levels!), ergonomics, and aesthetics trough use of wood and clever design.

    This guitar was intended to be a knod to both classic and modern design and an attempt in combining the two into an instrument that was both timeless and classy while still retaining the benefits of modern guitar building. The sparkle hi-gloss top finish is very subtle yet present in the correct light, and the matte lacquer on the back and neck gives the instrument a beautiful natural feel with giving the hand no resistance watsoever while playing.

    This is an instrument of amazing quality that will suit more classic or modern oriented players alike, covering a multitude of styles and allowing the player to experience the best of both worlds due to the use of of a very mild multiscale, allowing for the optimal tension for every string.

    A new Magistra with these specifications would cost the buyer around €3100,- excluding shipping and about a year of waiting. Comes included with Certificate of Authenticity, Hiscox case, and Straplocks.

    The guitar is in immaculate condition. With just one or two tiny marks of use (1 mm in size).

    Price: €2100,- OBO + eventual fees and shipping
    Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    Shipping: World-wide , as long as the buyer is willing to cover the charges
    Reputation: Many positive references across many board and platforms.
    Trades: Perhaps. Some trades + cash are considered or an amazing straight trade.

    Very light. I would estimate this to be about 2200 grams, perhaps a smidge more. Most certainly about as light as any American Parker Fly that I've tried.
