This guitar has a few signs here and there, where an owner using possibly a lemon oil or similar to clean and service the guitar, has managed to get some to seep through underneath the lacquer, noticeably on the top edge upper bass bout near the neck. Otherwise a very good condition in appearance and as a playing guitar.
Also has 2 grain lines on the top, one can be seen to the left of the bass side F hole. The other is located just under the top edge of the pickguard.
This is an indication that this guitar is possibly a solid carved spruce top. I will attend to cleaning, gluing and cleating ( if required ) over the coming days, certainly prior to the sale of this lovely guitar.
