This guitar has only had two owners. I have taken great care of it and had it for over 20 years. It is beautiful and an original hand carved by the wife of Jean Larrivee who designed and created all the mother of pearl emblem this emblem is priced at 750.00. It has a Sitka spruce top with minimal bear claw, mahogany neck. The body is thought to be Rosewood, but just confirming with company.
