This little Gene Autry Roundup guitar was made in 1935. It has a solid spruce top and solid birch back and sides.

The neck has been reset and the bridge replaced. It now plays beatifully and easily. One of the tuners is a bit bent. In my experience, it is best to leave as is because they tend to break if you try and straighten them. It has a set of silk & steel DAddario strings on it and it sounds absolutely amazing. Packs a punch way above its size.

You won’t find another one of these in this condition for sale in Australia, if at all.
