This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-01-14)
Price : US $260.00
A nice, Made In USA guitar that I inherited from its original owner, played for years, and did some recording with, but have not used in many moons, and I am scaling down my collection.
''This is a 16 inch blonde full depth non-cutaway blonde archtop acoustic jazz box. 1.75 inch nut width, unbound baseball bat neck with dot markers, truss rod, hinged tailpiece, fancy tortoise double binding on the body, uncompensated bridge . . . solid carved spruce top, mahogany back, sides and neck, rosewood board, monogrammed plastic pickguard.'' --Harmony Central dot com
The guitar is in not-quite-collectible condition. Some scratches and nicks here and there (mainly on the headstock and neck), and pick wear across the pickguard. Guitar is stamped #9892H1407 and dated 5-68 MADE IN USA.
I replaced the tuners (which were horrendous and difficult to turn) with these Gibson-style ones, they work very nicely but UNFORTUNATELY I can't find the original tuners! Where did they go? Well, I'll keep looking and if they turn up I'll send them along, but it's not looking too promising.
Guitar comes with its original black chipboard case which is, to be honest, falling apart, but which keeps it clean as it leans against the wall.
