A wonderful Papazian classical guitar from 1967. The back and sides have The Holy Grail
Of Brazilian Rosewood, not a crack in the wood , after 50 years, that says it all.
A truly remarkable guitar that has a very sweet sound that carries forever.
The Rogers Tuners are remarkably free flowing making tuning the guitar effortless.
The guitar is a dream to play with the very slim neck profile. A very Spanish designed
guitar lightly built with extraordinary wood. You cannot get this quality wood anymore.
Newly polished fretboard with new frets, all work done by Sasha Radicic from Saint Louis.
Nut and saddle adjusted for perfect intonation. 4mm/3mm at 12th fret, no buzzing
anywhere on the fret board. The nut and saddle is mammoth ivory. The neck is near perfect. This is a delicate and commanding Concert Instrument.+ years in a closet. No scratches on top, a ding or two hardly
noticeable. Refinished by a violin maker at one time, really don't know a lot about this guitar. Hidden far to many years, my fingers not what they were, reason for selling.
Comes with a HSC, price is $4800 plus shipping. Serious offers may be considered. Don't confuse this guitar
with those guitars made by Papazian with Bolivian or Honduros Rosewood. This guitar is
probably the finest guitar Manouk Papazian ever made.
