This dreadnought guitar can be described as good condition for its age, and very rare of this square label version. Has dings and scratches from a loved and actually played guitar. A great one for your collection.
The wood is very mature and really sounds amazingly rich. The W-40 has a D-45 sound, a really dark bass, and nice highs. This guitar has one of the best sounds for open chords playing, so much warmth and body from the use of Brazilian rosewood perhaps.
Top: Solid Spruce.
Back: 3-Piece, 2/Brazilian Rosewood with 1/maple
Sides: Brazilian Rosewood
Fret Board: Rosewood
Action: set low
There are scratches, a couple of Laquer dents on top (seen in the pics), and general wear from over 40 + years of playing. However, this guitar is still very nice and has a very impressive and amazing sound. Interior i don’t see signs of repair, so mostly surface cosmetics.
Add this 47-year aged guitar as a wonderful choice for your studio, stage or porch.
