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.

A rare and desirable bird there… enjoy!

I loved this guitar. I was dealing with it via Reverb and I was going to pay it but the seller abruptly broke the deal !!! So it was you. However, I’m glad you bought it. Congrats, a very nice guitar with a very good price. Let me know if you will sell. You know, I’m still in love with her…. Ciao
