This guitar has been repaired.
The join where the neck and headstock meet was badly cracked. The work was done by highly respected luthier Frank Tate & is exemplary.
I have had 11s on this for the last year and have had no issues. It has rock solid tuning and is as good as before the crack.
Anyone who wishes to view is welcome to do so but bare in mind that the price reflects the repair as I would be asking at least 1200 for such a sought after guitar otherwise.
