This wonderfully bluesy guitar oozes with rich woody low-mid tones and just the right amount of snap and presence. The 1-3/4" nut width and V shaped neck make for a truly vintage playing experience without feeling too big and the feel translates easily from a more modern guitar. This was built in the first year of production and features a unique raised pick guard (a fun design hold-over from the archtop school of building) and a "flat" style peg head. All original parts with the exception of what appears to be a newer saddle and the installation of side dots on the fretboard. There is a 7" crack on the back that has been glued and cleated. This one plays and intonates unbelievably well and is ready to jump right into a recording studio or stage! This includes the original chip board case.
