1940 Harmony Serenader 0-size, 12-fret in ladder-braced cedar/birch, 1 3/4” nut, 2 5/16” string spacing, easy to play with nice sustain


The cedar top, imported from an early classical guitar, transformed this guitar into a sweet sounding fingerstyler that offers way more sustain than its original all-birch wood set could ever have. The setup allows for easy fretting yet the volume is not diminished by a light touch. Nice example in solid, updated condition.
