CB #38:   Commissioned and owned by Matt Henry.   For Sale now that he has a new CB, #76.   The original post when #38 was new can be found Here.  Recent pictures coming soon.  Guitar has been played daily for over three years so has normal wear and tear but in good condition. I’ve witnessed and played this guitar monthly in jams with Matt.   It plays well, sounds great.  One small, tight crack in upper bout, outboard of fingerboard a couple inches, well supported, no action needed.  Minor fret wear.  Scratches in finish on lower side from guitar support.    $3,000. Here’s a recent video:

  1. Craig,

    This is a beautiful instrument. It has a rich tone and seems to be very responsive in the videos with Michael playing some very nice passages to demonstrate the evenness and clear tonal qualities throughout the range of the instrument. The sound is very well balanced from rich, dry bass to clear bell like trebles. Sweet!
