9.9 of 10 Condition (a few stray small superficial scratches on the back)

This is what handmade guitars are all about; beautiful design, top end woodworking, fine attention to detail, great sound and perfect geometry.
Steve Stratton really knows his woods (he was responsible for selecting and grading tonewoods at Allied Luthiery) and he knows how to build a guitar that works (he went Roberto Venn and worked with Charles Fox). The current base price for a Stratton guitar is $5200. This great guitar is priced at half that.
