There are no cracks or structural issues of any kind.
If you search on this site, you will learn about how these final guitars were finalized for sale to the public.
New saddle and nut. Original saddle and nut included. Really great Alessi machines with roller bearings.
TKL hard case.

Priced to sell so no bargaining! :wink:

This guitar looks familiar to me. If it’s the one I think it is then it is a wonderful instrument and SO easy to play.

Will a Zero Glide nut be included? Could not tell from the photos. Dibs, nonetheless!

If I didn't already own a lovely 1972 Papazian . . .

Here's to hoping that this wonderful luthier may receive some of the recognition he deserved.
