NO RESERVE....

This is a hand made electric/acoustic guitar made by Alton Nelson in 1999 when he was 78 years old. Mr Nelson has lived in South Dakota all his life and has made many instruments. Fiddles, banjos, mandolins, acoustic and electric six strings and others. I will note the info he included on tags that came with the case and guitar.

The tag for the guitar reads: No. 23   Electric guitar 17'' Date finished:1999   Style: Steel string arch top with f holes.   Wood: top: fir, wood purfling. back and sides: fiddle back ash, maple insert in center back. finger board: coco bolo with abalone dot position markers. tailpiece:   figured walnut with pearl bird inlay.  fingerguard: figured walnut with pearl leaf inlay.

Color: light brown with distinct grain.  Signature: (hand printed) Alton Nelson 78 yrs     The guitar is also signed in lead and can be seen through one of the f holes.

The case has a tag stating: Violin case(only in shape) double, handcrafted native red cedar (native South Dakota red cedar)

This is truly a work of art in addition to sounding amazing. The red cedar case alone is stunning and worth hundreds of dollars. I have played many of Mr. Nelsons instruments and all of them are really incredible. I have more pictures of the case...the top and bottom are a blond color with very nice grain in addition to the red cedar sides shown in the pictures. I tried to get a good shot through the f hole to show Mr. Nelsons signature...it can be seen though not too clearly. A cord is included. The tuning pegs say: Grover on them.

I have 100% feedback and have done hundreds of transaction on eBay. The case and guitar will be packed very carefully. There is no reserve. I started the auction at what I feel would be a steal for the case alone. I paid much more for the case and...
