Weight: 4lbs
Modifications/Repairs: Several repaired cracks in the top, back, and sides, most of which have been reinforced with internal cleats. Several internal braces have been reglued. The neck has been reset and refretted, and the heel block reglued. The nut, tuners, bridge, bridge pins, and saddle are not original. The guitar has been fitted with a soundhole pickup and endpin jack. The body and neck have been oversprayed.
Case Details: Hardshell case
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar has significant cosmetic wear given its age and number of repairs. The top, back and sides have several repaired cracks, along with numerous dings, patches of finish wear, scratches, and other assorted blemishes. The body and neck appear to have been oversprayed, and there are patches of hazing and checking.
Serial Number: 109233
Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with low action, and the frets are fairly low with light wear and divots. The neck is very straight and the reinforcement is not adjustable, and so the guitar has been set up with 13 gauge strings to pull relief into the neck. The guitar has been set up to play cleanly and comfortably in this condition. The serial number dates this guitar to 1949.
