Reposting with new pictures and a new price. Up for sale is this 1945 000-18 with a shaded top that is easy on the eyes and the ears. Adirondack top double bound, mahogany back and sides, rosewood bridge and fretboard, ebony neck reinforcement, original flatback tuners. Some light scratches, checking, and shallow capo marks but overall quite clean and original. Completely untouched mechanically until Frank Ford performed a neck reset and refret. This is a tapered brace era guitar, one of the earlier ones where the tapering is more aggressive. A competent finger- and flat-picker, the sound is focused, clear, with punch and overtones. Comes with a period correct probably original Lifton hardcase, also in excellent condition. This is a consignment guitar. No trades please.
