Scuffed up but nice looking and sounding parlor guitar. Quite playable. Great projection and sustain.

If I had to guess, I would say 1920s or 1930s or even earlier. The neck V is very pronounced. Probably a mahogany and spruce guitar.

One of the upper bouts looks like it may have been badly damaged at some time. The guitar has been worked on. The guy I bought it from back in the day off of eBay said he had used a screw to brace the

There is a seam separation or crack on the top that extends from the bridge to the rosette.

There is a 4+ inch crack on the back that I just had glued by a professional.

As far as I am concerned, this is a nylon string guitar. I don't think it can hold up to any kind of steel strings. It only has two braces.

All the strings buzz at the 12th fret. The B and high E strings pretty much stop buzzing above the 12th fret and are playable up there. After I recently changed the strings the open A and the low open E can be made to buzz.

I recently put the old (original?) tuning machines back on the guitar. They're kind of hard to turn . I put a bit of silicone grease on the high E tuning machine. The tuning keys operate in the opposite direction than one would expect .

A hard case is included.
