It was brought to my attention that this guitar was for sale at a small music shop about an hour away from where I live. I had to go check it out and ended up buying it. The store owner said it belonged to an 80-year old gentleman and he was selling for him. I can imagine that gentleman was the original owner, but I'm not sure.
This guitar is the most complete, nothing-needed vintage guitar I have ever bought. The neck is fabulous, and the finish has just enough "character" to know it has been played and well-loved.
