  • Condition:

    This guitar is in original, unaltered condition.
    The head, neck, back & sides are in very good condition with few marks for its age.
    The front has a rash of string-changing marks below the bridge and a rash of nail-end marks outside of the 1st string between rosette and bridge. There is 7 cm crack right on the edge of the lower bout, treble-side of the front - with four little lines alongside. This is insignificant for sound and does not require repair.

  • Comments:

    This is a fine Fleta guitar in good condition and with typical, characteristic sound - warm, typically Fleta, with a strong, bright treble, obvious clarity, quite loud and refined.
    With the additional, diagonal harmonic bar and nine fan-struts, this design normally has an air resonance around A. And when the 6th string is tuned down to D, the guitar has a wonderful growl.
    So - a fine Fleta in original condition and ready to be played.
