Acoustic guitar kit and the specialized tools needed to construct it. I successfully built a 000 size guitar for my daughter, and planned on building this one for myself, but lost interest after some initial work.

The kit is a Martin D-28 style kit from bluescreekguitars.com. However the back and side woods of this kit are highly-figured Bubinga.

If you were to buy a similar kit and all of the included tools and jigs you'd spend about $1700. I'm asking $800 for the lot.
More photos are available, and feel free to ask any questions. I'm located in Maryland, but work in DC, so if you're in the DC area you can avoid shipping on the heavy stuff.

Included tools and jigs:
D-28 mold - Blues Creek Guitars
000 mold - Blues Creek Guitars - from the guitar I made for my daughter
mold spreaders - Blues Creek Guitars
sanding dishes (2) - Blues Creek Guitars
Books
Homemade go-bar deck
rods for go-bar deck
string spacing ruler
binding laminator
soundhole and rosette routing jig
precision router base and edge guide
fretboard sanding block
fret beveling file
fret cutter
fret file
needle files
downcut inlay router bits set of 5
bridge pin reamer
KMG bridge setter package (martin short scale)
KMG router binding guide
nut files set of 8
deep reach clamps - 8

Too bad you've lost interest, but looks like a pretty good deal for someone. Hope it sells quick for you.

Anyways here are some more photos.

I have a friend who thinks I need one of these kits. That's about where I am starting. Is there a way to contact the seller directly. I'd like to know where he is in Maryland.
