PLEASE READ:  I will start with the PROS: Well made guitar, made in Holland, you can see in photo #2 the inner construction, meticulous attention to detail and quality material. This is a solid wood guitar, mahogany and spruce top. Walnut bridge and top plate mahogany neck. The vintage tuners are of descent quality, very unique. The bridge pins and tail pin are new with mother of pearl and are good quality. The tail pin is made of hardwood. This guitar is from the late 70's or early 80's and made by a reputable company for Germany that makes very expensive cellos and violins. The guitar sounds very good, loud projection, warm tone. Orchestra Model size, very comfortable, based on the Martin guitar OM series. Nice binding work around soundhole and edge. I will include an Oasis humidifier for the sound hole. The strings on the guitar are New D'Addario EXP.

CONS:  Has crack on soundboard, not very deep but can be seen in photo 10. There is also a small chip in the laquer. The guitar is playable but the action needs improvement photo 11, 5mm gap, not too bad but be aware of this. It has a truss rod BUT the nut at the end is broken off so it will need to be replaced with another. I am able to play on the entire soundboard without buzz. Right now it is ok but in the future may need work. Has scratch on the back of neck but really is no issue, hardly noticeable. Comes with case, but the case is in bad shape, you will want a newer one. PLEASE READ AND STUDY PHOTOS, NO RETURNS PURCHASE AS IS. THANKS.
