Bacon FF Professional No. 2

  • Excellent + Condition
  • Year: circa 1915
  • Serial #: 533


A favorite here at Uptown Music, this is a Bacon FF "Professional" model in mahogany prominently featuring an engraved pearl "flowerpot" inlaid on the pearwood peghead overlay. The light stained mahogany rim assembly measures 11" in diameter and features the hollow internal resonator design with curved metal tonering enclosed; Bacon stamps are very present on dowel; ivoroid bound exterior edge of rim cap. The dark stained mahogany neck has a 27" scale ebony fingerboard w/ engraved pearl position dots; equipped with original metal friction tuners w/ ivoroid buttons; 1-1/4" nut width. In excellent original condition, expected dings and scuffs, very light forward relief but plays/intonates well.
