The short scale, straight neck, reinforced by steel rods, and the fast action on this guitar make it a real joy to play. This guitar is also about five pounds so it is easy to carry from gig to gig and it is balanced perfectly for playing. This guitar has a clean, sweet tone that tells the story of its more than fifty years of maturation and it looks and feels fantastic. Get this guitar now while you can. Description from

CONDITION:Description from
This guitar is very clean and in good condition. There are three barely visible scratches that do not even penetrate the finish on the back: two near the upper treble horn and one closer to the center. We share information about wear in the interest of full discloser, but this guitar looks as if it was hardly ever played and kept really well. This 1448 still plays great and sounds fantastic.Description from
