Condition of Instrument:
Reset neck, refretted, replaced saddle with bone saddle. Touch up lacquer repair around sound hole. Looks like a lacquer stick repair. This touch up is done very well. Looks great. Long top crack on upper bout, bass side has been repaired with glue. Top crack on treble side of lower bout has been repaired with glue and a spruce spline, also one cleat near bottom of lower bout. Replaced maple bridge plate with ebony strip to hold bridge pins. The saddle has been changed to a compensated saddle. Non-Original Hardshell Case. Despite all this repair work, this guitar plays wonderfully and is dripping with vibe. It was hard for me to put it down to even photo it. Has a wonderful crisp, dry tone very dry sounding.
