Absolutely beautiful US-made 6137 from the early 70s.

Usually, the nylon string Stellas come in in excellent condition, and this one is no exception. I labeled it mint, because excellent won't do it justice, but we can say excellent to near-mint for its age. I'm not sure of the date, as it's likely under the label, but I'd say maybe '71-2, as it has the white paper label and etched bell end tuners.

Plays beautifully and intonation is perfect perfect up/down/side to side, but the plastic saddle is held by tension and can be pulled and shaved when you set it up to dial in action to your liking/tuning. I tend to manhandle strings, so I like the higher action :)

Really sweet tone and projection from the 50 year old solid birch. Holds a tune, straight neck, dead flush top, like-new hardware.

I think this was likely a student guitar that became a closet dweller, because it's very clearly been kept free from the elements and damage. Cosmetically, it looks phenomenal. Far fewer little chips and scuffs than I usually see. No damage no gouges. Finish is in great shape (inclucing the faux binding) andthis model has a really nice black and yellow rosette.

This is definitely a buttercream indie dream.
