What makes this guitar special:  Gorgeous look & feel and a real player's guitar.  Rich, warm tone; sweet dynamics & a beautiful resonance that seems to ring for days.  The guitar has aged wonderfully, showing off a soft patina & only light play wear.  Professionally set up by us with fresh strings & low action, so it plays like a dream.  Don't miss out on this American beauty.

Cosmetic Condition:  Great shape for its age & very well cared for.  There are various minor nicks, chips & dings; surface scratches, light weather checking & mild play wear.  No cracks in the body or neck.  The neck was professionally reset & refretted before we acquired the guitar.  The neck is straight & plays great up & down the fretboard. 

Neck:  Mahogany neck with cream side-dots.  Ebony fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays.  Professionally refretted & the frets are in great shape with no wear.  Grover Rotomatic tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 11/16" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length.

Body:  Solid spruce top with 6-ply binding.  Ebony bridge with cream end pins.  Black pickguard & multi-ring rosette.  Solid Indian rosewood back & sides with 3-ply binding.  No pickup.  Guitar weighs 5 lbs.
