About This Listing

This listing is for vintage 1930's Supertone Hawaiian theme parlor guitar and it has lots of promise!

The most important issue re condition would be the neck. It plays fine like it is and neck heel looks to be holding tight, but does have a slight twist in the cowboy chord area. The string height is actually very consistent top and bottom and plays with no fret buzz.

Also has a previous owner's initials crudely engraved at upper bout on the treble side (see pics). Also has "B.C." scratched into the top at lower bout, treble side just to the right of top decal.

No cracks or thinned out spots anywhere. All binding is in excellent condition. Only relatively minor nicks and scratches to finish and on back of neck. A few of the original tuners have a slight bend, but still tune the guitar smoothly.

The very cool decal works still looks beautiful, but does have some crazing.

Pearlized plastic fretboard as well as headstock overlay in excellent condition as well as frets. The "pearliness" of the fretboard is much more defined and vivid in person. My medicocre camera just washed it out some in a few photos.

The bridge has some minor damage, mostly at saddle groove (no saddle presently). I suspect a previous owner removed the saddle to improve the action a tiny bit. There is a nice break angle to the back of the bridge, so a new saddle that just meets the strings should work well.

Please review the pics closely as part of description. No surprises here, it really is very solid, but the neck could use some attention if wanted to play perfectly.

Comes with basic semi-hard black vintage case in excellent condition.

Shipping via UPS Ground insured w/tracking to the US Lower 48 only is $50.00. I may ship to Hawaii and if there and a serious buyer, please contact me with your full location (city, Zip code) and will get a quote for you. It would have to go USPS, so will not be super cheap, but will only charge actual. Thanks,
