This guitar was converted to an electric in the 1950s and was later restored as an acoustic. It had also been heavily ‘varnished’ and was unplayable when its current owner purchased it.
The restoration was carried out by luthier Michael Heiden (heideninstruments.ca), who installed a new dot inlaid fingerboard in place of the original fingerboard which had block inlays.
The guitar’s current owner reports that now “it not only looks glorious, but also feels, plays, and sounds fabulous!”
