CITES A 10 Certificate # 552408/01

    Such a rare model to find any more and this one is a real corker.  I've owned it twice and it seems to get better each time.  Lovely brazilian rosewood rims and back with a Sitka spruce top and mahogany neck, all original and very sweet patination.  Lovely colour.  From a sound perspective, it's very powerful and clear with great resonance and sustain.  12 fret action with a very comfortable neck just don't get better than these little machines for fingerpicking or flatpicking for that matter.  Two very tight grain cracks below the bridge in dark streaks of the wood and a few short pickguard cracks......obvious why they are there and completely secure and tight.  Otherwise, it's near mint.
