More and more we’re finding new, high-end acoustic guitar makers guilty of producing instruments that are “all show and no go.” Whether it is tone woods being sourced from old-growth forests, the magic of natural aging, or the bygone builders with know-how that’s been lost over the years, these older acoustics really are in a league of their own. Here’s a wonderful example of a dreadnought with tasteful aesthetic appointments that don’t cross into gaudy. Great projection, clarity, and single note definition are the hallmarks of its gorgeous sound. Oh any by the way - it's a lefty!
Cosmetic Condition: Good honest play wear & exactly what you would expect from a 46 year old guitar.
Neck: Medium profile mahogany neck with cream side-dots. Rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. Frets are in great shape with practically no wear. Mother of pearl Guild & Chesterfield headstock inlays. Sealed tuners in perfect working condition. 1 11/16" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.
Body: Square should dreadnought in natural finish. Solid spruce top with 5-ply binding. Rosewood bridge with bone saddle. There's an ever so slight gap at the back of the bridge, but it's not too bad. Large tortoise pickguard & multi-ring rosette. Solid mahogany back & sides with cream binding. There are no electronics & the guitar weighs 4 lbs 14 oz.
Case: Vintage hardshell case included.
