Turn of the century parlor guitar from the John Haynes company, which was based right in our backyard in downtown Boston. The Haynes "Excelsior" was a beautifully made little guitar, featuring Brazilian Rosewood back & sides and gorgeous marquetry. This ladder-braced specimen has had a few top cracks expertly repaired and finished over, but it plays and sounds great with silk & steel strings. Pronounced V-neck shape and a 1 13/16" nut. Comes with chipboard case.
