What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the genuine article!  A true piece of history that speaks with a clarity and depth that few new instruments can muster.  The guitar came to us with a slide setup that still allows players with sure fingers to manage fingerstyle in the first position comfortably enough.  Playing a guitar like this is like having a conversation with a raw, real person--rest assured, you will learn plenty about your own playing and music in general with this heavy spirit in the house!

SP Luthier Notes: Setup and bridge cleanup / Set up for slide*

*Contact us directly for information on setting up this guitar for fingerstyle. Due to the nature of this instrument it is set up perfectly for slide, but will require additional, involved luthier work in order to achieve a fingerstyle action
