Mahogany back and sides

This instrument has a top repair. It is shown in one of the pictures. As you can tell it is barely visible. I buy refurbished guitars with visible repairs, because they are great bargains. I also repair instruments. Top cracks in acoustic guitars happen for a lot of reasons, especially in the factory. This one was sent to the refurbisher, where it was repaired by a professional luthier. Great and good guitars have issues and cracks all the time. But they are still great instruments. So, we repair them and allow them to play on… with character…
In addition to recovering, rebuilding, and refurbishing intermediate priced guitars and folk instruments from the last 30 years, we also sell factory authorized refurbished instruments, sourced through one of the largest instrument recyclers in the US. These are a great deal for anyone that wants a quality like new instrument with a limited budget. You don’t get an equivalent you get an original.
This is a professionally refurbished instrument. They mostly come from the factory, or from large dealers. Some instruments have flaws, like a paint glitch, while some need simple repairs, not visible, like repairing a lifting bridge or fretboard. Some have a repair that is visible but makes the instrument good again, like an acoustic with a cracked soundboard that needs repaired. Sometimes it gets rejected because the color is not quite right, or it was sold with accessories, and the factory ran out of accessories.
Unlike a new instrument, or typical used one, this instrument was completely checked out, and tested by factory authorized skilled Instrument Technicians (Luthiers). After it was inspected at the refurbisher by experts, it was repaired if needed, and/or verified as “fully functional as intended by the manufacturer. Then, it was distributed to dealers like me, to get to smart customers like you. You get a great, as-new instrument, at a great price, less than discounted new!
If there is any visible repair or flaw on any instrument we sell, we note it here.
This instrument has a visible repair on the top, just below the bridge.
By law, since it was handled after it was released, the instrument is marked as “Used” by the Refurbisher with a light stamp on the headstock, and assigned a new sticker serial number.
I offer my instruments at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. I always reject lowball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it; I may be in a good mood today!
