Early CA Legacy AE vintage voicing acoustic electric guitar. Absolutely sublime tone, a genuinely wonderful sounding & playing instrument. Early model with ebony fretboard, and ebony bridge.

Vintage voicing manufactured to emulate the sound of a vintage Martin. Some fret wear, but lots and lots of life left. Online manual says they're stainless steel. In great playing shape but some minor repairs and cosmetic issues to note: 1. The tuners were temporarily replaced, but restored to original Black Sperzels, there is a harmless extra screw beneath each tuner from this. 2. There was a bridge crack that was professionally repaired. It looks worse than it is. You can run your finger across and feel the integrity & smoothness of the repair. This is entirely cosmetic and does not effect the playability of the instrument. Includes hard case.

*Updated with better pics of the repair. Basically the ebony wasn't done seasoning, and the carbon does not season at all, so a shearing action split it cleanly at its weakest point. This is why CA no longer use ebony bridges & fingerboards. It's too bad because it adds something that makes you look twice. 

*Updated with fretwear pics, it's really only in open position, most visibly under the B string. If frets have 3 recrowns, this one isn't half way through it's factory crown, and has all of them left. 

*updated with action measurements. I think it's perfect, but I may enjoy a high action? See pics for details. There's a little saddle left but not much. Fortunately this one has a an ebony bridge, so if you like your acoustic set up like an electric with 9s, a competent luthier should have no problem shaving it down & polishing it up.
