|Nut width||53 mm|
This is a lovely, meticulously-made guitar from one of America's most well-known luthiers, Dake Traphagen. It has a smooth, round and balanced tone, with a fast response typical of a great Spanish flamenco guitar. It has added punch that will provide plenty of sound for any concert situation. The spruce top gives the tone great color and balance, while at the same time proves fullness in every note without sacrificing clarity between the voices. Playability and setup are very comfortable. Features "machined" pegs for the old-school look (and weight) but tunes quickly and easily. It also has some beautiful and subtle inlay throughout the purflings in the top, foot, tie-block and rosette which give the overall instrument a very classy look. It is in excellent condition with only some superficial playing wear in the finish.
