77-5035. Indian rosewood back and sides, spruce top (German, I suspect), mahogany neck, ebony fret board and bridge. The guitar is entirely original and in very good condition overall. The bass side has one crack of about 2” length that has been repaired and is tight, level and stable. There was also a small crack at the bottom edge of the soundhole that has been well repaired and is stable, otherwise the top is crack free as is the back. The frets and fret board are in good shape showing only light wear. The original finish shows light crazing here and there and normal signs of handling and play but nothing significant in terms of wear or damage. The neck is straight under tension. The neck angle is marginal at the moment, headed for a reset in the future but for now the guitar is able to be set up (as it is now) for flat picking with no problem. Currently with medium strings the action measures 8/64” and 7/64” with just a little shy of 1/8” of saddle showing above the slot. The guitar has a big, open voice that is well balanced across the tonal range, very well suited in my opinion for bluegrass or old time ensemble play. Loud and powerful. Comes with a non-original hard case. $1400
