Here we have one of the coolest guitars I've had in the shop. It's been over 10 years since I've had a Larson, and this is a great one to get reacquainted with. I'm no Larson expert, but from what I understand this one is quite special, as they didn't make many 14-fret Concert models in this time period. Apparently the Euphonon models and this one in particular show several of the markers of being built by the brothers themselves. Please note that it's had a lot of restoration work done, but it's in wonderful playing condition. Very crisp and clear tone, with a delightful glowing "hum." The action is between 7/64" and 8/64", and there's not a lot of saddle left. So if you like lower action, it will likely need a neck reset soon. Comes with newer Martin case. Seems like no-issues models (not as much restoration work), which are mostly parlors, are going for $7K to $8K in today's market. Considering the impending neck reset and restoration work, but also the rarity of the 14-fret Concert body, we think this one is pretty fairly priced.
The restoration work includes: headstock crack repair, new frets, three crunch repairs on back and top, several crack repairs, bridge crack repair (bridge is original), and some areas of overspray and buffing. This guitar went through Tony Klassen's shop (a renowned Larson expert), and he deemed it stable and called the repairs well-done.

Cosmetically, this guitar is almost 100 years old, so you know what to expect. Please see the pics and description.
