Neck reset and replaced bridge of correct size and shape – the original one was screwed into the bridge plate which has been plugged, otherwise it is in good shape. Top center seam was reglued and short side crack through the endpin hole glued with hide glue. Original including barfrets, engraved Waverly tuners which are in fine condition. Ebony neck rod and straight neck. The finish is original all over but was very dry and brittle, so we added some alcohole to dissolve a bit and fix, mainly on the back. Lightly built with big warm and matured tone. Hc. On consignment.
