The San Salvador is a traditional 17" Carved Top Jazz Guitar.
The top and back was hand carved and tap tuned by Jim Triggs, and he personally selected the wood himself. The Traditional Shaped Neck was handmade, and the Natural Blonde Finish has six to seven coats of hand rubbed nitrocellulose lacquer. This Guitar also has the upgrade top mounted PAF with tone and volume knobs.
It is an incredible piece and only a limited number (35 since 2002) of the San Salvador Models have been built ? with information provided by Jim Triggs himself stating that very few are alike.
This guitar is in near mint condition and has been stored in humidity and climate controlled conditions when not in use.
With these guitars retailing for $5,500 or more ?This Guitar is a steal at $3,200 plus shipping and handling.
