About This Listing

R.C. RC Allen Unfinished Guitar Project Big Body Jazz Side Braces Hi Quality Woods Set Of 3

ALL & ANY OFFERS CONSIDERED THERE ARE NONE OTHER LISTED SO I NOTHING TO GO BY AS FAR AS VALUE

BEST OFFER WINS! Who knows you could win this for 50 bucks!

Finest workmanship on par with Martin, Gibson ect.

R.C Allen passed away 8 years ago and some of his projects were sold off to various local dealers here in Los Angeles. I acquired this from one of those dealers recently. At first I was thinking of restoring this but since its very rare and RC Allen is no longer with us, perhaps it should be left as is / historical piece to accompany the right collection. But of course do what you will! Extremely well made big body guitar potential here. 

With the help of Deke Dickerson, longtime friend of R.C. Allen’s, RC's forms and presses used to produce archtop guitars have come to reside here in my shop. RC built instruments for well-known musicians -  Merle Travis, Hank Thompson, Eddie Dean, Joe Maphis, Del Casher, Roy Lanham, Michael O’Dorn, Bob Saxton and others. RC had been building guitars since the early 50’s and was an important link to the past having received guidance in guitar building from Paul Bigsby and John Doypera, the creator of the dobro and was large fixture in the early Sothern California Guitar revolution along side Bigsby, Doypera, Moserite, Richenbaker, Standel, Fender, Fullerton and others
