This is outstanding promotion. This group is growing daily and as a result the potential customer audience will also grow along with it.

We offer such advertisement oportunity and in return we only ask that you share the link www.nugentguitars.com to your web and FB page/group. If you prefer not to add our website then all we ask is that you can make a relevant donation to us, made payable to Nugent Guitars (See all details below). Once you have added our link or made payment then please let us know and we will add your advertisement to the group.

CITES Application

On 02 January 2017 the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) added all rosewood to the list of endangered woods and therefore all rosewoods imported/exported, re-exported will require a permit for such travel within or outside the E.U.

It is also necessary for some  guitars being commercially marketed to have the necessary CITES permit to legally allow such commercial advertising.

This will involve the completion of necessary application/s and providing supporting evidence to give proof to the woods imported/exported/marketed have being legally felled.

Nugent Guitars is pleased to offer such an application completion service and or assistance to all our customers/clients here in the UK.

Research & Valuation

Through the passion I have for the classical guitars and it's luthiers, I have for many years studied and travelled in search of guitar information and knowledge...

I do not believe there can be such title as "expert" in this field, as the search for new information continues daily and is, in my opinion, infinite. However, I do possess a very comprehensive knowledge in this subject area and I am expert enough to know how to research and discover information which is not readily available to me.

I have particular fondness and interest in the classical guitars from Spain throughout the 19th & 20th Century.

I have provided this service for many clients over the years, which has on all occasions proved successful.

Please contact me direct if you would like to discuss research, or in fact need a valuation of your guitar/s.

The CITES application process and researching guitars takes time, patience and finance. 

I do not set a fee for this service, as I believe all research cases and valuations should be taken on a case by case basis. But I do kindly ask that on the completion of any service consideration is given to  making a donation of any amount to Nugent Guitars (reference: research). All donations will be gratefully received and, as has been done in the past, be used in the further research of the classical guitar and it's luthiers, so this information may continue to be successfully shared with our world community.

The donation is not obligatory..it is voluntary.

Thank you

Tony J. Nugent
