Description

Pre-owned Fairbanks F-20 just into the shop for consignment! This is an all-mahogany version of Dale's standard L-00 model, featuring an ebony bridge and fingerboard. This is a well played-in guitar -- and if dead mint condition is a must-have on your checklist this may not be the guitar for you. While there's nothing off-putting, one area of the top finish has dulled a bit from arm positioning and there's light pick wear on the top. You'll also notice a strap button in the side of the guitar near the treble edge of the neck heel: that was installed by the builder when the guitar was constructed and is a non-issue as far as structural stability is concerned. If you've been eyeing a Fairbanks guitar, this is an amazing value. Heck -- if you've been eyeing a vintage L-00 this is a great value! The voice is woody and warm, with an openness of tone only rivaled by instruments from the 1930's. We expect this guitar will have many suitors, so call us today if you'd like an in-hand description. With contemporary hard case.

On consignment.
