This guitar is overall in great shape. There is one 4″ back crack professionally repaired. No side cracks or top cracks. As expected for a guitar this old, there is some evidence of handling and player wear including a some nicks and scratches. None of these jump out at you. On the top, there are some small polite finish crazes. On the back, some button marks. Frets and fingerboard in great condition with only minor signs of wear in the first position. Neck is in great shape.
This guitar has such a great, big sound. It’s deep and resonant but also projects each note cleanly. A very fine instrument.
