Strong voice with excellent harmonic complexity from this Brazilian rosewood classical by Eugene Clark. This is an early example of the esteemed, late American maker's work, dating to his time in New York. While the beautiful set of Brazilian rosewood is the star of the show here, lovely details abound, notably the intricate wood mosaic rosette and original Landstorfer tuners. There are several well repaired cracks and a center seam separation and some finish wear on the top behind the bridge. Most importantly, the sound is all there: bold low end and equally potent trebles, with an open responsiveness and maturity that only a half century of life can provide.
