Beautiful and playable Chicago-syle blues box. Spruce top, quarter-sawn oak back and sides, rope inlay, similar to Lyon & Healy and Washburn of that era. Comes with period correct Bulls Head case (in so-so shape), missing a clasp, strap and replaced handle but does the job. Guitar is in good shape for being 100 years old give or take. Might need a touch of work on the bridge to set a better intonation and remove a very slight buzz on the upper frets.  Made for the Up-To-Date Music Company.  This is a gorgeous parlour that still has many more stories to tell.

Feel free to ask any questions or request any additional pics.  Thanks for looking.  Shipping to Canada only.
