This is a beautiful, all original example of a Pre War 0-17.

The guitar is in beautiful condition with no overspray, cracks etc.  The only add is what appears to be a 1/8" brass screw in eyelet fixture for perhaps a shoestring style strap end.  The guitar is in amazing condition, inside and out - see all our pics!

The original bridge and bridge plate are intact.

The neck needs a re-set.  I might have it done at some point, but for now the guitar is for sale as-is.  

The V neck feels amazing.  The tone really is something else as well. 

The original case is included.  It shows some wear, but far less than you might expect for an 82 year old guitar case.
