    Cedar - highest quality and seasoned at least 15 years. the front is shellac, french-polished. Rosewood bridge with tie-block decoration matching the rosette.

  • Condition:

    The back, sides, neck and head which are lacquer-finished, are in very good condition with hardly any marks. The lacquer finish has some hard-to-notice crazing lines - a harmless and common occurance in such finishes.
    The french-polished front has some nail marks and surface scratches from string changes. All fairly normal wear and nothing unsightly.

  • Comments:

    Dominique Delarue's concert guitars have been very much admired and sought-after in recent years. They are strong cedar guitars with richness of tone combined with clarity, focus and sparkle and of course has been played in. This 2005 guitar is no exception and is constructed in the same way as the current ones.
    A fine concert guitar; the choice of many professionals and at a significantly lower price than a new one.
