Here is a scarce vintage ELGER acoustic guitar, Model No. 827 R.
A predecessor to the Ibanez line, made in the LATE 60's, from Japan.
It is in very good, solid playing condition. No problems, no damage. Ready to play right out of the case.
It holds tune fine, good intonation. It sounds lovely with rich deep tone, and it plays great!
Very low action, all notes sound clean and clear, and FAST nearly effortless playing from end to end!
I have played lead guitar professionally for over 40 years, and THIS guitar is VERY nice to play!
I would not say so if it was not true.
It arrives here from a very old and funny friend of mine, a writer, who wants to sell, because arthritis has stopped his fingers for good.
He has had this guitar for many years, and not playing it very much.
He told me he did not buy it new, and it was being well played when he got it in New York City living in very hip musical circles.
It has some playing wear and small dings to the finish as would be expected for a used instrument of this age.
There is one small area near the sound hole where the shellac is worn off..
It appears to be all original. Fine light spruce top, all good woods were used in it.
The frets show some wear, but all
