Possibly Chicago handmade guitar; some unique features steer me away from the major manufacturers, but this is a professionally built instrument. Beautiful Brazilian sides and back; spruce top, deeply aged; marquetry binding and soundhole rings; ebony pyramid bridge; ebony fingerboard with pearl inlays; 2-piece mahogany neck, full triangular shape; multi line back binding; body bound in white; 3 old splices in top; a few short repaired back cracks; well repaired head and heel cracks. This is a solid and well made steel string guitar with ladder bracing and a full bass. Nut width: 1 3/4"; string length:24 3/8"; lower bout width: 13 5/8"
