This beautiful, in MINT condition, guitar features an Adirondack

Spruce top and Dana’s Best Indian Rosewood for the back and

sides with a Multicolor Herringbone backstrip.


There is NO wear or tear on the guitar frets, No dings, NO dents and NO scratches). The hardshell case is in pristine condition as well. Less than five hours of play on this guitar.


This is truly a wonderful sounding guitar - the lows are low and the highs are bell-like clear with a mid-range to please.  Strumming to flatpicking to fingerstyle - this guitar handles it all well and easily.  The volume this guitar can produce is amazing; along with ease of playability. Asking $3,700
