Manuel Velazquez Classical Guitar (1981)

Manuel Velazquez  Classical Guitar  (1981)

Manuel Velazquez Classical Guitar (1981), made in New York City, natural finish, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, sitka spruce top, original black hard shell case.
Overall length is 39 3/8 in. (100 cm.), 14 1/2 in. (36.8 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 4 1/16 in. (10.3 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 25 1/2 in. (648 mm.). Width of nut is 2 1/8 in. (54 mm.).

Very fine condition overall; very little play or handling wear at all. There is one splice to the top center seam, and the top appears to have a light French polish in some areas. The lamination seam on the heel also has a re-seal visible on close examination. This is an extremely neatly made and wonderful-sounding guitar with exceptionaly clarity and balance, as we expect from this most well-respected of New York makers. Hand-signed and dated 1981 by the maker. Excellent - Condition.
