Circa 1887 Bay State Style E in wonderful condition. Serial number 1006. Gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood back/sides.  This guitar has been expertly rebuilt by Dan Lambert including repairs/enhancements and tuning of the original ladder bracing for optimal tone, retaining original wood whenever possible, reset neck, new radiused ebony fretboard, new frets, new ebony nut/new bone saddle, new ebony bridge, new ebony bridge pins, and new carbon rod installation in neck. The result is a great playing vintage guitar that realizes its full potential with enhanced resonance, a very pure and pronounced fundamental, ringing highs with fantastic sustain,  and outstanding punch for its small size. Steep but shallow "V" neck profile.  8 1/2" upper bout. 6 7/8" waist.  12.0" lower bout. 3 1/8" deep at end pin.  Comes with vintage (possibly original) case.
