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.

Neck:  Very comfortable, one-piece mahogany neck with dark rosewood fingerboard & cream side-dots.  Frets are in great shape with no wear.  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!

Case:  Vintage hardshell case included, although the handle is missing.
