Rode M5 pair (X/Y) - Tascam DR-60DmkII - .wav (no EQ/effects)

I'm pretty confident you'll never see another example of this guitar. Jim made this one as a departure from his normal pre-war replica style guitar - think of it as his take on a Kevin Ryan model. It has a 15 3/4" lower bout, so its voice is powerful and rich. I love walnut and redwood, and it's a pretty special combination on a single-luthier guitar like this one. You get far more complexity, color, and overtones than a typical Merrill, and you'll find more character for fingerstyle passages. Again - much like a Ryan. It just got a setup from my tech and is playing ultra smooth. Comes with original hardshell case.

Cosmetically, this guitar is in very good condition. There was a crack in the FWI nut, and it looks like it's been glued. My tech said it's nice and stable and won't affect the sound - it was probably glued to preserve the nut since FWI is so expensive. Otherwise just very minor signs of handling.
