I recently fitted new Grover tuners. An Allen one piece brass tailpiece was added as well. I bought this over ten years ago from Brian Aldridge of Dry Branch Fire Squad, and this was the backup to his Loar. The sound is very deep, full and rich with great volume and projection. It responds beautifully to the most aggressive bluegrass or the gentlest picking. Comes with a nice hardshell ca...USD $3750
