I am so sure you will like the tone quality on this guitar that I will include a return label in the case. If you don’t like it, send it back. However, please don’t buy if you expect a perfect looking acoustic. This does have repaired cracks.


This is an early ’70s jumbo dreadnought made near Longmont Colorado. Many famous musicians played these.

Our V-bracing restored the top. fixed the cracks, and provides superb sound and harmonic response. The last few images show the original bracing and poor quality patch work. Our patching is neat, clean and structurally reliable.

We did a reset.

Play action is very nice. The neck is thin as a rock guitar and is all original.

Condition

There are multiple cracks in sides and top. Because we removed the back, we were able to substantially repair and stabilize all cracks. You can easily see our repair work through the sound hole. Our crack repair and stabilization work is second to none. For this reason, we are adding an additional year to our warranty.

Back is perfect. This was a fun guitar to refinish. The original finish was an almost opaque brown. When we removed the finish, the lovely multi-colored grain is what you see here. Is it possible that this is actually Coco Bolo? Opinions vary.
