What makes this guitar special: Hand crafted in San Diego, CA by luthier John Kinnard for Dell' Arte, this grande bouche gypsy jazz guitar features all solid tone woods, producing a tone that's exceptionally loud & powerful. We don't often come across these models, but when we do, they tend not to last long here in the shop due to their coolness & rareness. Professionally inspected & set up by the experts at Cream City Music with fresh strings & low action, so it plays & sounds fantastic!
Cosmetic Condition: Used, but not abused with typical mild play wear - various minor nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches & some finish wear on the top. There are a couple of very tiny, superficial stress cracks on either side of the neck, near the nut. These are purely cosmetic & do not affect playability or sound quality. Overall the guitar is structurally sound & in really nice condition.
Neck: Nicely rounded, wide profile mahogany neck with gold side-dots. Ebony fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. Frets are in great shape with very little wear & plenty of life in them. Slotted headstock with vintage-style gold tuners in perfect working condition. 1 7/8" nut width with zero fret; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.
Body: Solid spruce top with grande bouche soundhole & multi-ring rosette. Brass tailpiece with floating ebony bridge. The armrest is attached to the top with a strong adhesive. Solid rosewood back & sides. 16" lower bout width; 4 1/2" depth. Guitar weighs 4 lbs 4.2 oz.
Electronics: There is a 1/4" input jack in the bottom of the guitar, but there are no internal electronics hooked up.
Case: Original hardshell case included along with a portion of the warranty registration card.
