* This is a guitar that I made for stock that I kept as a demo and has been played only rarely for a year. It is structurally perfect and sounds amazing. But there are a couple of blemishes and I am disclosing those here: A hairline professionally repaired 6" split in the rosewood back that occurred during construction; a finish blemish in the top below the bridge at the book match connection; and at the edge of the top/binding connection point at the tail there is a small irregularity and there are very light scratches as would be expected from playing it. I will send close-up pictures of these very minor (in my opinion) to anyone who wants them. I guarantee the structural repair on the back for the life of the instrument. It comes shipped in a Humi-Case or similar guitar case.
