Such a delight to have this guitar in the shop. I'm told this one was owned by a Gruhn employee, and they certainly had good taste. It's warm and woody, with a ton of mojo. And I'm not throwing that term around lightly - you can really feel the history oozing out of this thing. Just instantly comfortable in your lap. It plays fantastic, with a healthy setup. I'm told it's all-original, but I'm having that verified by Gruhn.

Mahogany back/sides
Sitka spruce top
14-fret 000 body
Herringbone binding
Brazilian headplate
Ebony fretboard
Open-back nickel tuners
1 11/16" nut, 2 1/8" spacing, 24.9" scale

Cosmetically, this guitar is in good condition for the vintage. You can see signs of age all over the body, but there are no wood cracks. No overspray that I can see. It does have a repaired (by Gruhn) B-string pick guard crack. Nice saddle height of 4/32" remaining. So all in all, a pretty clean example.
