Dauphin guitars have been offered from Spain, Czechoslovakia and Japan.  They are considered to be fine instruments for the serious student of the guitar, which alas I can never be. Perhaps the best have come from Japan as this one has. It came to me from a young man who aspires to a professional career and who has moved on to a costly concert guitar. He used this one extensively and it shows the signs of considerable use with excellent care.


This instrument is in excellent playing condition with no warping or cracking. The neck is straight and the action easy with a gap of 5mm from the strings to the 17th fret. The top is solid cedar and has a wonderfully rich and warm color. The back and sides are of gorgeous strongly figured rosewood. The tuning mechinisms  are elaborately figured and colored.


There is some minor wear on the ebony fingerboard, some slight marking near the sound hole from his fingernails, and some very small and shallow dings and scratches. The back shows some dulling of the finish from normal use.


The wooden framed case is old and battered. I have gone over it with glue and spray paint to limit further deterioration and it looks alright at a modest distance. More importantly it remains sturdy and entirely capable of protecting its fine contents. 


This is a strikingly beautiful guitar with a strong and rich voice.  It deserves to be in more talented hands than mine. I have the ear but not the fingers. I must be content to fumble with my old Yamaha
