Just got one of these, and I'm thrilled with it. I can tell it was built in 2000. Can't say enough about the guitar.


Would anyone be able to tell me the production years?


And any idea how many were made?


I've been poking around and can't seem to find this information anywhere.


I'd appreciate any help.


Thank you.

I posted some photos on the introduction page.


All I've been able to find out is that they seem to have been made from the late '90s to the early 2000s. Some say 1998 - 2002


One piece top and back. Braces carved in the top, so no glue joints.


Love the instrument, but I'd like to know more about the production run
