This instrument is a Kemnitzer rebuild. The top sustained damage and needed to be replaced. It was done with Red Spruce and the entire instrument was refinished. The owner then made an unfortunate choice in strap button placement. Mike has replaced it with a pearl dot. There is a remnant of the strap button imprint which was too deep to completely disappear, but it’s barely noticeable.

All of this being said, it’s a very sweet sounding vintage Nugget Standard A Model  with an impressive chop and arched fingerboard, and it’s available with a Calton case at $10,500.
