CITES Article10 Certificate #553239/03
A genuine old warhorse of a 000-18.......but goodness what a great sound it makes. Everywhere are signs of use and play.......mottled finish, changed tuners, filled holes in the front of the headstock, scuffs and dings.......but what a powerful instrument. Original bridge and pickguard, solid mahogany rims and back with a sitka spruce top and brazilian rosewood board and bridge. After all of this, she still wants to play and play with the voice of an angel and a lion depending on what you do to it. I've always said that many times these old warhorses sound better than the under-the-bed variety and this is proof. If you like scruffy but great, this is your guitar.
