Body: Spruce top with mahogany back and sides

Neck: Mahogany neck with a “V” profile, 1 3/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, concave radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Grover banjo-style tuners, no electronics

Cosmetic Condition: This 1929 tenor is incredible! The top has plenty of play wear, as to be expected from an instrument of this time period, as well as a repaired crack that splits a doweled hole near the neck. The back and sides are very similarly worn, with a repaired crack along the lower bout, but overall are holding up nicely. The neck feels nice and smooth, with only minor inconsistencies, while the headstock shows a few finish chips and a bit of edge wear. This tenor is bursting with character!

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

Modifications/Repairs: There is a repaired crack on the face, and also on the back. There are three doweled holes, most likely from a previously installed pickguard.
