Cosmetic Condition: 100% original & in magnificent condition for its age with no cracks, breaks or repairs. The guitar is simply gorgeous with very little wear - some minor nicks & dings; small finish chips & surface scratches; light weather checking - otherwise the guitar is quite clean. Overall it's just beautiful, with a sound that compliments its appearance - rich & warm with a sweet resonance & sustain. The guitar has been professionally set up by us with fresh strings & nice, playable action.

Slotted headstock with classical-style tuners in perfect working condition. 2" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is pretty straight & plays great up & down the fingerboard. String height at the 12th fret is about 1/8".
Body: OO-size body with tortoise binding. Solid spruce top with some wide grain patterns. Rosewood bridge with multi-ring rosette. A clear sounhole protector was added, but is not permanent & can be easily removed. Solid mahogany back & sides. 14 1/2" lower bout width; 11" upper bout width; 4" depth. Guitar weighs just under 3 lbs - light & resonant!
