Comments:

Just Arrived!  I will write more as I get to know the guitar.  She is in excellent condition.  The guitar is traditionally built, well before his double top construction days.   The guitar really is magnificent with a strong Spanish character, clear, bold and direct.  Very good condition if not excellent.  Honest playing wear on the top, minimized at best.  CSA is in excellent condition.  Play is moderate, not too difficult, able to drive her fairly hard.  I like that in a guitar.  She’s very nice.
