Ervin Somogyi Classical Guitar (1976)

  • Beautiful Birdseye Maple back & sides
  • Spruce top
  • Multi-colored rosette & top purfling
  • Brazilian rosewood bridge
  • Rosewood body bindings
  • Ebony fretboard with Maple bindings
  • Ervin's signature "scalloped nut"
  • Finish checking abounds - please examine the photos
  • The previous owner had the top crack sealed
  • All other repairs are guesses at this point, but I would venture that this guitar was damaged at some time, and the back was removed either by the damage, or for the repair - 
  • The guitar is in fair to good condition
  • It is highly playable and sounds great, but the edges where the sides and back meet are not completely tight or level in some places.
  • Bits of white glue are visible
  • The end graft shows this same un-eveness
  • The tuning machines work, but are difficult to turn
  • Older hard shell case included, could be original
  • We are offering this guitar for sale "As Is" with no warranty stated or implied
  • In the right repairman's hands, this baby could really shine again
  • Priced accordingly
  • Year Condition Color Case
