Very cool 1940 Del Oro parlor size resonator. Actually it's a half-resonator, as it has a cone and spider but no soundwell. Restored from firewood, but came out really nicely. Tight neck set and all seams and braces are tight/reglued. Stright neck and flat fretboard. A little mismatch of the back and sides at the bottom end. A couple cracks on back (one long), but both are solidly cleated. A couple tight cracks on treble side upper bout. Neck extension had broken off and is supported by a small piece of wood underneath. BTW, the missing fret in the pics is now replaced - forgot that when I took the pics. Plenty of finish wear, but painted floral design is strong. Newer cone, spider, and plate. No, they're not Beards! Plays (standard as well as steel) and intonates quite well. When you do a total resto you can get it right. Nice jangly metalic tone. Very cool mojo.

Real charges only - no added materials or handling charges. All guitars insured for full value. I will use the least expensive shipping available, although this may be slow in some circumstances (e.g. parcel post). Please let me know if you desire a faster, albeit more, expensive service. Please allow 2 - 4 days of time to prepare and pack your guitar IN ADDITION to the actual shipping transit.

NO buyer's remorse PLEASE! Damage or loss in shipping = insurance claim (with which I will be glad to assist you). At my discretion, a disatistfied buyer may return a guitar (with a thorough explanation) for a full refund of purchase price but not of shipping. I'd rather begrudgingly take back a guitar than truly disappoint a customer. If, however, I have ever made a serious error in identification/originality/damage etc. that negatively affects a guitar's value, then a full refund including shipping will be given. PLEASE file any return claims ASAP - seven days at most.
