George Wilson Late 1700's Italian Style Guitar (1977)
Inspired by Italian guitars of the late 1700’s, this instrument has a small body with a solid spruce top that extends into the fingerboard. The sides and back are made with alternating staves of mahogany and cypress. The soundhole rosette is inset with a diamond pattern. It could use some minor work (sold AS-IS, see Details section below), but overall it’s in excellent condition. More Details...
