Summary: This big-bodied, square-shouldered dreadnought is built from the classic tonewood combination of Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides. Advanced X-bracing made of scalloped Adirondack red spruce braces bonded with hide glue to support the top pays tribute to the power-house dreadnoughts of yesterday. Classic features like maple binding, rosewood fingerboard and bridge and a one-piece quarter-sawn mahogany neck all contribute to the tonal brilliance of this guitar while finish details like the abalone sound hole rosette, mother-of-pearl diamond eye fingerboard and headstock inlays, custom two-point tortoise pickguard, back marquetry strip and gold Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners all contribute to its elegant styling. Gibson’s hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer in Antique Vintage Sunburst finish ensures a beautiful sheen and authentic aging that doesn’t interfere with the guitar’s resonance.

Cosmetics: This guitar has various nicks, dings, and scratches throughout (See Photos Please). The pickguard is starting to lift a little on the points. It has a bunch of small little dents near the pickguard. There is pick wear on the top of the body and pickguard. The back of the neck has some very small indentations. The frets have a fair amount of wear on the high “E” & “B” strings up to about the 7th fret. Overall, this guitar has some cosmetic issues, but it plays and sounds fantastic.

Modifications: The truss rod cover has been changed to one that says "Grace" in cursive.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.
