This guitar is stage and studio ready. I bought it online a few years ago and put a lot of money into it to get it ready to play. It's not "authentic" vintage, but it plays great, sounds great and is actually usable.

I would characterize the tone as that kind of direct, boxy and punchy. It does have a good amount of low end, but this guitar is not ideal for rhythm but lead. 

To the best of my research, I believe it was made by Lyon & Healy in Chicago around the 1910s. If you know better, please feel let me know. 

I had all the work done by the excellent Chicago Fretworks. If you're not familiar with them, it's where Wilco gets all their guitars and amps worked on. This guitar holds tune incredibly well, intonation is spot on, action is perfect for fast playing, neck is worn in and it plays really nicely. This is what I mean by it being stage and studio ready. 

Here's what I had done to the guitar by Chicago Fretworks. 

  • K&K Pure Western Pickup
  • Custom ebony nut
  • Neck reset
  • Complete refret

If you know anything about guitar repair, this work wasn't cheap, so it pains to part with this guitar, but I do not use it enough to justify keeping it. This has been an 18 month decision that I will probably regret someday. It's a super cool guitar. I've recorded a bit with it. I've even played it through a crunchy electric amp and it sounds awesome that way, too. 

Includes "modern" hardshell case (original "alligator skin" is also available if you want me to ship that, will be a little extra for that)


Sold As-is because I really don't want to ship this twice.
