This guitar left the Mantes la Jolie worshop on the 30th of October 1946, and was sold to a certain Mr Delavaux on the 14th of February 1947 and is part of the batch of
35 guitars made somewhat differently than the rest of them..traditionally, the back and sides were made of rosewood, with grafted headstocks and walnut necks..
this one is made of beautiful Honduras mahogany, with a solid non grafted headstock Honduras mahogany neck, with an ebony fingerboard. it is in the purest condition.. nothing was changed or done to this guitar.. no cracks anywhere but an obvious sign of serious "pompe"...it even still has the original factory bridge..
the sound and playability is outstanding, and it is quite a treat to have a guitar that never had anything done since it left the factory 68 years ago..
it came in the original case that did not afford it the necessary protection, so it is now in a new modern case, but i will be glad to give the original one as well..
THIS IS A GREAT GUITAR NHSC $35,000.00
