Man, does this one sound amazing!  So alive and resonant! The neck is hefty and worn just right - it feels perfect.  

The guitar has seen some work, which makes sense because it was clearly played and loved. 

I just got the guitar back from my luthier, where two top cracks and one small back crack were stabilized.

A small bridge plate was added over the original, likely because the holes were worn.  It really does feel and sound as though this has not affected the tone whatsoever and the work appears to be professionally done.

The original endpin hole was plugged and a standard strap button added, along with the strap button added to the neck heel.  There is also a very small hole on the top edge of the peghead - almost missed that one!  See pics.  The guitar had a pickup at some point.  There is a plugged hole where there was an output jack.  This work was nicely done.  The area seems to have received some overspray.

Tuners are repros.  Old tuner screw holes were professionally filled.  The bridge saddle was professionally replaced.  The guitar was likely refretted at some point and they've seen a fret level.  They show some wear but there's plenty of life left.

Original case included.
