Sad to let this one go, but I need the money to pay some debts.

This guitar was handmade somewhere between the late 70s to mid 1980s by the Japanese luthiers at Morris in their Matsumoto workshop.

This guitar is in good condition, but it does have scratches, dings and a surface crack on the front. I’ve had the guitar checked out and set up by Eric’s Guitar Shop. He got the guitar into working condition after I purchased it. The surface crack does not affect the playing capabilities or sound of the guitar.

The fretboard has real abalone inlays, along with abalone inlays around the body and sound hole.

It’s worth noting that the saddle has room to be lowered. The action is a bit on the higher side right now, you could play slide on this guitar as it is right now. I have Martin Brass Strings on there, 10s. Sounds really resonant.

Specification:

Top: Solid Spruce with reinforcing ring of wood glued underneath the sound-hole

Back: Jacaranda Rosewood with a center seam of what I believe is either walnut or maple.

Sides: Jacaranda Rosewood

Neck: Mahogany with 2-way truss rod

Fingerboard: Brazilian Rosewood

Nut width: 43mm

Scale: 655 mm

Does not come with a case.
