With my looming acquisition, I have decided to sell a couple of guitars that "I think" I can part with, only time will tell.
First is a Folklore 1114. This one has a "colorful" history which I will try to recap here. When I bought it the guy did not know squat about guitars. he said "other than a few dings and scratches it is in great condition. When I received it, it was obvious the bridge was lifting off and behind it was a through the wood crack. So I worked out a deal with him and I had it sent off to John Budny for a fix and a set up. When I got it back new bridge was nice and crack was fixed and sealed, but in shipping it received a finish crack. I sent it back to John to fill. It came back with the finish crack repaired and...... 2 more smaller finish cracks! At that point I just told John not to worry about it and just leave it (It has a rather high saddle but it was setup by the factory so I would say its good as it is). So that's what I have now. It comes with either a chip-board case or a gig bag, your choice. Let me know if you have any questions or want any specific pictures. $400 takes it. Talk to me.

You mention a high saddle, how high is the action at the 12th fret. With a straight edge laid on the finger board, where does it touch the bridge? Ideally it should be right at the top edge of the bridge.
