  • Condition:

    In outstanding, original condition from the first owner who has clearly treated this instrument with great care and respect. There are no significant marks or scratches at all; just some very minor little marks.
    The back and rear of the neck could reasonably be described as 'as-new'. There are some small, shallow marks under one side. The all-important front looks beautiful with only the tiniest of marks.
    We cannot reasonably expect to find many guitars more than ten years old in such beautiful condition.

  • Comments:

    Here we have a stunningly beautiful, traditional instrument from a maker who has always been known for producing some of the finest quality of luthiery to be found anywhere.
    This guitar has a warm sound, with good depth of bass, clarity and sweetness of treble.
    A simply lovely guitar in exceptional condition.
