Re: Dauphin Model 60 Classical Guitar

:Hi, Chris,

I have a Dauphin Model 60 Classical Guitar that I purchased in the late '80s. I'm not finding any guidance as to what to ask for it and I've had absolutely no luck in my internet search to learn anything more about the company (other than the Matsuoka Company in Japan took over at some point). Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Dauphin Model 60 Classical Guitar

A little dated for the followup, but in case you check back here. I'm having much the same problem. I, too, own a Dauphin Model 60 which I purchased used in 1990. At the time it cost around $750 - $800. Recently I noticed a web site carrying another used Dauphin Model 60, in good condition, listing a price of $425. It's still there: http://www.trinityguitars.com/steelstr/used/frame.htm

I personally think $425 is a bit low. They're nice guitars. I haven't really seen anything better for less than a grand, though there are several makes I'm not familiar with these days.

Re: Dauphin Model 60 Classical Guitar

I have a Dauphin 30 which I purchased in 1984. I can't remember how much I paid for it - most likely somewhere in the vicinity of 450 - 600 dollars. I honestly do not remember. The sound of the instrument today rivals guitars priced well over 1,000 dollars. Mine could use some new frets right now but the instrument is a nice balanced tone, very nice bass end and nice action.

My feeling is that I would never sell this instrument. You'll not get what it's worth. Upgrade, but keep the Dauphin. That's what I would do. It is a really nice instrument and worth having around.

Dauphin 60

I got my Dauphin 60 at the Laguna Guitar shop for about $450 as I recall in about 1980. I prefer it for sound, action, and beauty to my $1000+ Ramirez Estudio 1972. I won't sell it. Anyone want a Ramirez?

Re: Dauphin Model 60 Classical Guitar

I have a Dauphin DF60 purchased in the early 80's. I too can not remember how much I paid for it but, I would never sell it. The tone of may particular guitar is wonderful and it rivals guitars that are valued at $20K +. The action and ease of playing this gutar is great too.
