It is a 14-fret joint model in the prewar period, which is one size smaller than 000. Although it has a smaller body than the Dreadnought and Triple O, it sounds with the wonderful sound unique to Prewar, which has been in production for many years.Due to its size, the low is not violent and the single note is thick and solid even with high-pitched strings. There is a sense of unity when playing chords, and I think it is suitable for both finger and stroke styles. It looks that the neck, is thicker than other generations peculiar to this period, also plays a role in this sound.
The frets haven't passed much since the replacement. There is no clogging or chattering. The neck condition of the T-bar rod is also good. There is one crack on the treble string side of the top and one on the back, and the cleat is struck from the back and it is repaired beautifully. In addition, some paint baldness and touch-up can be seen on the back.
It is an individual with high originality and good condition. The tuner has been replaced. Comes with a Canadian Bobren hard case (almost unused). The light gauge is stretched and the string height is 1.7mm/0.06" for the 1st string and 2.6mm/0.10" for the 6th string at the 12th fret. It has a cow bone saddle.
NUT WIDTH: 42.5mm/1.67. There are some marks and dents on the body surface. There are signs of use. Please inspect pictures for condition reference.Thank you for visiting our listings.
