About This Listing

For sale is my handmade Foster Basin Street 17in Thinline guitar.

Serial number 305.

If you know about high quality handmade jazz guitars then you'll have likely have heard of Jimmy Foster from New Orleans that used to make these classics before he unfortunately passed away in 2011.

Outstanding tone both unplugged and plugged in.
