Looking for a different sound? Here's a unique vintage openback that I believe to be made by Lyon and Healy. The head is 13 1/2" in diameter, the scale is 26 1/2", and the nut measures 1 1/4". The double spun pot is in wonderful condition with its notched tension hoop and all-original hardware save for one nut. The frets and board show no wear and the action is right for the nylon strings (5/32nds above the 12th fret). There is a tight heel repair that shows only as a 'line'. The pegs hold, the head is beautiful, and the sound should please any old-timey aficionado. Because of its unusual dimensions, I'll find a guitar bag to ship it in.
A very observant BHer noticed that the strings were moved to the treble side soas to wonder about the angle of the neck to the pot. Somehow, I had bumped the bridge to one side. Be assured that the neck is right (I bumped the bridge back to its proper position).
