Beautiful guitar by Peter Oberg. I heard others compare the sound to Robert Ruck with whom Peter worked for a time. I'd call it powerful, warm, easy to play, colorful. There is a small dot at the 7th fret. I couldn't resist and changed the tuners out for a set of Baljak...I think they look beautiful on this guitar. The Calton case is aftermarket as well. The ID plate on the case calls the model "Gregory Byers", but this guitar fits as perfectly as you could wish. Peter had a surfing accident when it was time to finish this guitar so he farmed it out to the great Yuris Zeltins. As for condition, there are assorted marks, a bit of the typical dulling at the arm contact point, but the overall look is excellent. This is 'jump on it' price...
Here's an older pic that shows the head carving. Those are the old tuners.
