About This Listing

This is a spectacular guitar that I custom ordered from Nelson Palen in 2000 after I became the exclusive distributor with Lou from Guitars N' Jazz. This is one of the most fantastic archtops you can find. Even George Benson purchased one from us. Nelson only made 99 guitars before he was no longer able to make anymore.

It is in the same pristine condition as when I ordered it. Not a mark on it. No fretware. It has never been played outside my home. It sounds and plays like an absolute dream. Has a 25" scale and 1 3/4" nut. I had it finished in a beautiful ice tea sunburst and Nelson even "antiqued" the binding to look aged. 

The top is hand carved solid spruce and the back hand carved solid maple. This is an unbelievable playing and sounding guitar and you will not be disappointed. Comes with a hard shell case.

Shipping and full insurance is $150. Sorry but shipping rates have gone through the roof.
