Over the years this instrument has been rebuilt twice by the well respected Bjarne Dahl- in 1972 and then again in 2003 when he introduced new delrin jacks and plectra and lightened the action--a full rebuild. It's last service was in 2010, and as you can hear and see from recording and photographs, the instrument is in remarkably good condition, and--in fact-- performance ready. Located in San Francisco, CA. The owner truly wants a quick sale and will accept the best offer over $7,500. Please be in touch!
Due to current US Fish & Wildlife documentation requirements, this instrument is NOT recommended for export.
