Somewhere, this beautiful instrument received a first-rate restoration. The sunburst is fabulous, there are a couple repaired cracks in the sides, seems to be original everywhere but the finish. There's a thin piece of spruce or maple glued to the bridgeplate to protect the original plate from getting chewed up by countless ball ends, which we are planning to make even thinner. There's been a neck reset as well, with nice high bar frets and saddle. The bridge is possibly a replacement, but if it is, it's so nice that we'll never know. It's tone is quite powerful, very sweet, singing, with excellent balance and clean, deep bass.
