  • Condition:

    Sold as a used instrument, this guitar is in very good condition, with just four or five of the very faintest of marks and some polish dulling. We believe the body to be varnished rather than shellac french-polished and has nearer egg-shell finish to the front.

  • Comments:

    From a maker that has for many years enjoyed a world-wide reputation, this is a rich, loud and penetrating concert guitar. On first playing, it is obviously powerful with warmth in the bass and brightness of treble. It also offers a quick right-hand response which many players on the competition circuit are looking for.
    So - a strong, professional level, concert instrument with the benefit of the shorter, more comfortable to play 64 cm scale length to attract performer and aficionado alike.
