This guitar was built by veteran US luthier Michael Thames, who has been building for over 40 years and over 950 instruments. Thames has built a large variety of instruments including historical replicas as well as experimental, contemporary models of his own. This is a beautifully made, traditional guitar from 2012, built with gorgeous materials including birds-eye maple for the back and sides, Rodgers tuners and beautiful inlays, particularly down the center of the back with some geometric patterns fitted inside the inlay. Easy to play and with a big, robust and lush sound, this is a fantastic instrument all around. Although a second-hand guitar it in great shape with only minor wear in the finish. Overall a very fine concert instrument.
