There is some touchup where the tailpiece covered the top. The ladder bracing is tight and solid and the top is nearly flat with very minimal belly and slight warping around the sound hole. The sides are crack-free and the back has one 3 repaired crack on the trebles side lower bout. I can't positively identify the wood on the back and sides. It is solid wood however and looks like rosewood but may be birch.
The back center seam was re-glued. The neck has been reset and the angle is perfect with the action a 1/8 at the 12th fret. Although the neck is straight, there is a very slight twist toward the nut.It doesn't affect playability and the guitar plays easily and buzz-free up the entire neck. The rosewood fretboard is in excellent condition with no pitting and the frets have been leveled and dressed, There is plenty of fret left. The neck binding has numerous cracks but has been regaled and is solid. The fretboard falls away slightly from the 12th fret to the sound hole.
The original tuning gears are in excellent shape and hold tune perfectly with very minimal play. The intonation is excellent and the guitar has a clear and balanced tone with good volume. It's strung with D'Addario Custom Light Phosphor Bronze strings.

Lower bout-12", upper bout -9", nut width - 1 7/8 scale length. 24", depth at the butt - 3 3/4" and overall length- 36 1/2.
