Always nice to hear one of these classic Bozeman Flatirons! Designed after the old Gibson Army Navy model, the thin, flat body type has a robust sound all of its own that delivers excellent chop. The 2M model utilizes this familiar design with a nice Maple back. This example comes to us well loved, but in great playing shape. A solid spruce top has some well repaired cracks, mainly at its center seam (south of the sound hole), one by the binding on the treble side, and two parallel to the 1st & 6th strings from the neck. The back and sides sport a nice flame in the maple. There is pick wear present and some generally mild dings throughout the body. The neck set is still nice, and yields great action with a tall bridge. The frets are in great shape and show no significant wear, likely to a recent leveling. While there is no logo on the face of the peg head, "The Flatiron" is stamped on the backside. Tuners function as they should. Comes with the original hardshell case.
