Spruce top, rosewood back and sides, three-piece maple neck, ebony fingerboard. Low action.
I bought the guitar used in 2011 from John Kinnard himself, master luthier and general partner of Dell' Arte Instruments, out of his home/production facility/showroom in northern San Diego County, California.
I played it for only a few months before deciding to change direction, musically. Since then it has been in its case, standing up, strings slightly loosened, protected from temperature/humidity extremes. It’s in the same condition as when I bought it, which is like new; and I am asking exactly what I paid for it.
