Body: Mahogany

Neck: Mahogany neck with a medium “C” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 9.5” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Open-back tuners, no electronics, three-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: This cowboy looks like its been bucked more than a few times, but like any good cowboy, its no quitter! The top has plenty of character, from the halo around the pickguard, to the various dings and scratches. The back and sides show a bit more wear, with a heavier dose of dings and scratches, as well as a good showing of edge wear. Along the bass side upper bout there are a couple of larger blemishes that reveal the unfinished mahogany below. The neck is nice and smooth, with a couple of small dings behind the 1st fret. The headstock shows a moderate amount of edge wear, but overall is holding up well for its age. This Caballero is ready for campfire songs!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: There is a previously repaired crack.
