An extraordinarily rare offering, this is a Lyon & Healy Style G 2089 "Monster Guitar", produced for a short time by the famous Chicago firm. Proving that bigger is probably better, this large wonder features a 22.5" wide lower bout, which produces a truly sublime richness and depth, and is likely the largest flat-top possible to play. The body was made with gorgeous Brazilian rosewood for the back and sides, with a cross-braced straight grained spruce top; fully bound and top trimmed in herringbone w/ fancy rosette; numerous reglued cracks present on body, back/sides have been refinished, with replacement bridge; reproduction celluloid pickguard sits atop original footprint; original paper label intact inside. The fully bound mahogany neck has a 25.5" scale ebony fretboard w/ typical v profile, 1-13/16" nut width, rosewood overlay w/ celluloid strips on interior peghead slots; neck was professionally reset, and refretted, and hairline cracks in ebony were filled; excellent playability. Included in sale is custom fit Cedar Creek hard shell case.
