This is a beautiful 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. We also had a new saddle added.

The neck has been reset, a very professional job that has completely dialed the guitar in. A new bone saddle was added as well.

The guitar is in amazing condition, inside and out - see all our pics!

The original bridge and bridge plate are intact.

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.
