just looked at a 00-21 Serial number 305XX which puts is 1/3rd the way through the 1927 production year. Is there any chance this is a gut string model? Or,
are ALL '27 model steel string?
Condition wise it's a bit of a players model, some very minor dings, some minor worming on the back, a non-original pick guard (just to protect the top there is no major strumming marks on it underneath) the bridge is replaced (the cracked original is included) and a repaired top seam crack that was splinted many years ago and the splint is now darker in color to the original Adi top color. After the repaired to the top was done in was professionally refinned - the repair work was done 30 years ago.
What opinions might you have one the steel string/gut string design it would be, and, what should the market value of this be? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
