This guitar was built by John Peter Barthell of Sequim Washington in 2008. It is guitar #139.
I'm not sure what the finish is. It seems like satin maybe. The top is quite marked up and there are scratches on the bottom side at the waist
possibly from a belt buckle(pic included) thus the deep discount.The action is a little high which works well for me but there is plenty
of saddle left if you wish to lower it. It's a small bodied guitar with a very warm sound. It masks nail noise very well which I know is a big
plus for some of us.It's warm but very clear. The voices in choral type music are very even. It is also even from string to string. This guitar
is not a canon but it has a lot of character with a decently wide tonal envelope and a quick response. The workmanship on this guitar is
fantastic as is all of Pete's work. It has a sound port and a one piece side which I've never seen before. The guitar comes with a chewed up TKL
case. The guitar is negotiable but I can't move much. It's a beautiful instrument.
