635 mm Scale, 50 mm Nut. Very Thin Pine Soundboard and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. 5 Fan Braces. Original French polish. Original Gears, New Bone Saddle and Original Bone Nut. Separate kerfing pieces attaching the sides to the top and back, making the most powerful sonoral result. When this arrives the restoration will be performed. If you look close, one can see this guitar originally had pegs, and the quality tuners were added later, that could be what the glossy Estruch Hermanos label means that mentions they did the restoration on this instrument.
The guitar weighs: 1,140 grams=2 lbs, 7.72 ozs.
This has a soundpost, usually found in a violin, it needed to be placed to lift the top, to correct the action on the treble side of the fingerboard. This is reflected in the price.
