1997 Goodall Rosewood Grand Concert (RGC) #1254
Plain and simple, this is a spectacular guitar. Indian rosewood, spruce top, mahogany neck, ebony board and bridge, bound in curly koa. More or less equivalent to an OM, with a 15" lower bout, 25 1/2" scale, 1 3/4" nut width and 2 1/4" pin spacing. The neck has a modern "C" profile that is neither clubby nor too slender, very comfortable. There are a few minor strum marks from a pick on the clear pickguard but otherwise this guitar is cosmetically mint, looks virtually untouched. Structurally 100%, no repairs ever and needs none now. There is a very slight degree of fret wear in the usual places in the first position but nothing that needs attention right away. Tonally the guitar is outstanding...very responsive to fingerstyle play and a light touch, but has lots of headroom for a flat pick attack. When played hard it is loud and unruly without losing its fundamental tonal definition and character. The action is set at 6/64" and 5/64" with just under 1/8" of saddle showing. Comes with the original hard shell case. $5000 + shipping, NY residents add 8% sales tax.
