We are thrilled to offer this exceptional sounding Grand Artist by John Monteleone. John's career is sprawling, having built instruments for numerous acoustic heavy hitters such as David Grisman, Mike Marshall, Paul Glasse and many more. This early example has a wide open sound that only comes from years of being played. The low end is powerful with plenty of sustain and depth, while the trebles remain punchy and clear. Although there are signs of honest play wear (see photos), it remains in great structural condition and is set up, ready to be played again. Priced with an Ameritage case.
