All of the guitars I sell are restored by me.  No one else has touched.  You are assured of excellent workmanship.

Well, I never thought I would work on these, but suddenly I have two.  This is now a nice upgraded         small bodied guitar, as solid birch bodied and spruce top guitars go.  Back was removed, original ladder bracing         replaced with forward shifted X-bracing. Original crappy bridge replace with solid ebony.  Fret         board replaced with solid Brazilian rosewood, tinted to a darker color.         Action is Low-E 4/64 High-E 4/64-5/64 at the 12th fret. So, you can actually play this little guy,         instead of hanging it on the wall as you would have to do with unrestored versions. As for me, I would         just hang it on the wall and admire the lovely graphics.

Neck was reset.

Back bracing is original, but rounded and sanded smooth.

Bracing is added to the sides to give a stiffer, improved playfeel.

As usual, satisfaction is guaranteed.  Returns allowed per our warranty.

I pay attention to small details. Top braces are tapered and sanded smooth. The inside back and sides are         cleaned up and sanded smooth. Back braces are rounded and sanded smooth.         Harmony production glue globs are chipped out. Serial numbers (if any) are preserved.
