This is a 1998 (Newtonards) 025 with a cedar top and Indian Rosewood back and sides with dolphin bracing. This older model also has abalone in the rosette.
As expected, there’s a bit of wear on the guitar’s top that can be seen in the pix. There’s also a 1″ shallow fissure on the top at the waist. This developed a few months after I bought it new in 1998 and it has not increased over that time period. Has had the nut replaced at some point. Absolutely no other issues. Frets very good. Lowden Branded Hiscox case and original certificate included in sale.
Guitar for sale elsewhere. No trades, thanks.
I’d prefer to hand this guitar over wherever possible. DM me if interested. Located in East Lothian/Edinburgh area.
Shipping to be discussed if required!
