Product Description

Extremely rare early 00, this guitar has been a beautiful sounding, much loved and much played, yet still in great condition, performance instrument. It's been strung with nylon, and sounds so good it doesn't need steel strings, however could be setup for steel and would sound amazing. The earliest 00s were actually long scale, 25 1/4", probably a good part of why it works so well with nylon strings. Having originally been made for friction pegs, it has a solid peghead. We put Schaller Minis on it around thirty years ago since they were the best available back then in the dim past. They work great, but there are other more vintage-style options these days. There's one repaired hairline crack in the top, several in the sides, including a small 1/2 inch patch, the tiniest delicate herringbone purfling, a beautiful original or forgery grade pyramid bridge and the pronounced "V" neck shape of the period.
