About This Listing

The guitar is all solid wood. Carved spruce top & back, maple sides and bottom.

NO- braced. It does not have, nor has it ever had any internal reinforcement. Perhaps for this reason the holes in the top have been placed up, it may be to reinforce the area where the bridge rests on the top.

Attached to the body on the 12th fret, is a straight fingerboard with no radius.

It has a 62 cm scale and an ebony fingerboard. The frets are very thin, almost mandolin. 

For details of its construction, fingerboard width, wiht no radius, scale length, etc., it seems that it was built to play in the manouche or jazz swing style. I'd probably use manouche, strings, or silk and steel strings, though in this case it's strung with flat wound jazz strings

It has a screw to hold the neck to the body and to change the angle of the fingerboard.  the neck easily, in the style of some guitars that were made in Vienna. French-style varnish with shellac.

Although it has many small scratches on the top. Its general condition is very good. And it maintains the original lacquer varnish.

The guitar works well, maintains tuning, in octave too, and can be played very comfortably. Great sound.
