Description

SN: 23339. Terrific sounding, player grade 0-18K made in 1925 in Nazareth, PA. With their all Koa body, made with wood imported from Hawaii, many were made with a raised nut and saddle to be played Hawaiian style on the lap with a slide. This one appears to have been originally set up for Spanish or standard play as the fingerboard has a proper radius and the side markers look original. The wide 1-7/8” nut, generous string spacing at the bridge and 12-fret neck make is a very desirable fingerpicker with a punchy tone with good volume perfect for blues and old time music.

Overall, an attractive guitar with unusually figured Koa and ebony pyramid bridge. There is about a 4” crack on the back that has been stabilized and some cupping of the top just north of the bridge. A few touchups here and there mostly under the strings. It’s been set up with comfortable low action and full height bar frets that are nicely crowned. It plays very smoothly up and down the neck.

Consignment. Ships with a newer TKL hard case.
