A very rare all mahogany circa 1910-1920 Empire State built by the Viohl family.  This guitar has beautiful purfling, backstrip and rosette.  The mahogany has a wonderful smooth patina as well.  This guitar has been rebuilt by Dan Lambert including repairs/enhancements to the original ladder bracing, retaining original wood whenever possible, neck reset, new ebony fretboard with slight radius, new position markers, new ebony belly bridge, new frets, new bridge plate, and new ebony nut and bone saddle. Also, a carbon rod has been inserted into the neck to enhance the structural integrity for another 100 years of playing.
