Fractionally smaller than classic OM size with 25 and 3/8 inch (645mm) scale length.

Nut is 1 and 3/4 inches

Shallow radius fretboard

Soft v-shape neck - very comfortable to play

Classic veloute on reverse

Slotted headstock

Serial number 65, Year 1987

All Koa back, sides and front, gorgeous abalone appointments

Recently looked over by Ralph himself - ‘excellent condition for its age and no issues he could see’.

Hiscox case and pick-up inside

Amazing condition for its age, hardly any dings, some varnish seep into the wood (have tried to capture in the pics) but a collector’s piece for sure. These guitars were and are prized/played by the likes of John Renbourn RIP and Clive Carroll

Glorious ‘snappy’ Koa sound (similar snap to an all mahogany guitar)

These would start at around 7.5k GBP these days - and Ralph’s waiting list is three years

I’m asking £5,500

Can courier within the UK for less than £200

Europe and international tbd, but can-do
