Condition of Instrument

Very Good condition. Has some light buckle rash on the back. A small area on the top the size of a dime that has be filled with stain or lacquer. The treble side on the bottom by the strap bottom also has a lacquer touch up. These 2 small repairs can only be seen with a black light. 100% changed pickguard with a volume and tone control added. Other than these changes this guitar is 100% original. Includes hardshell case.

Tonal Evaluation

A beautifully full, rich and resonant sound that's balanced with laser focus clarity and articulation for single lines. The acoustic sound is woody and warm with a delightful sparkle on the high-end. Simply put? This is a fantastic sounding archtop.
