I did try to tell everyone to make an offer on the HG-950. As you all know by now I am a bit over the top on the Hohner guitars. I am the one that bought the 950. After talking directly with the owner and getting the history of the guitar I made an offer which was turned down and a new offer that was accepted. As Paul Harvey would have said, here is the rest of the story....... The seller got the 950 new from a music store in South Africa owned by his uncle. He recently emigrated to the U S and lives in small quarters while seeking employment. He played the guitar very little as he, like me, is not a musician. That is a condition I hope to eventually change in my case. I look at this as an opportunity to compare this guitar with the one I acquired from South Africa after a 9 month struggle to get it here because of the CITES situation. I will decide which one to keep and then sell one of them for exactly what I paid. Not ready for sending pictures yet but I recently got a HG-912 that completes the Arbor series collection. Actually I do not have the HG-905L. I am somewhat ambidextrous but doubt I would ever play left handed. I have heard that some people would give their right arm to be ambidextrous. I will update info and pictures when able.
