The bass is very deep and sustaining, while the trebles are clear and projecting well. This guitar looks like it has been slightly played with some nail marks but still in excellent condition. This guitar has been checked by a local luthier.
There is no structural damage and repairs, no cracks and no binding separation... All the marks and scratches are very superficial.
Nothing going deep into the wood. Those issues are so small and I will provide the close-up photos upon request. The string heights were set up very low at the previous player's preference.
For professional player, another bone saddle may be recommended for higher action, depending what type of strings will be installed. The E string plastic tuning knob has a crack line and maybe glued tight before. It doesn't bother the tuning. I just installed a new set of Galli GR65 normal tension on May 7th, 2020. It sounds like a canon.I think the saddle could go a little higher, it will be louder and more punch. Again, this is a powerful instrument and all solid construction. Feel free to submit best offer and questions. Tuner set: original gold plated tuner (made in Japan).
Soundboard bracing pattern: traditional Spanish 7-fans (Ramirez). Nut/saddle: bone with 52 mm nut width. String height at 12th fret: 3/32" at low E and 2.5/32" high E as shown on the photo.
The bone saddle has a very good string angle (see the photo). In fact, it needs to be higher for better volume. Strings installed: I will install new Galli normal tension strings at the E, A and D. Case: vintage Japanese hard case arch top. Any low ball offer will be declined or ignored.
All reasonable offers and questions will be handled to the best of my capability. Thanks for looking and happy ebaying.
