  • Condition:

    This guitar is in lovely condition with very little playing or handling marks.
    There is a very short, tight crack right down on the bottom of the front, just to the treble-side of the centre seam. It is of no significance.
    Other than that is terrific, original cosmetic condition.

  • Comments:

    This is a really fine Romanillos instrument. Very deep in voice with an air resonance close to E, (but not on E), it has a typical Romanillos sound with deep bass, strong middle and a very clear, balanced treble reminiscent of some of the mid and late-70's examples. The all-important 1st string sings like a bird and the guitar as a whole demonstrates substantial volume and power. Really very fine.
