Ecole E300 Classical Concert Guitar
This is a wonderful Classical Concert Guitar by the master luthier Eichi Kodaira. Made in Japan in the early 1970s.
This was a luxurious guitar at the time and it was the second model from the top after the E500. Please check my other listing for the E500. Also, take a look at the headstock and the beautiful tonewood pattern.
This guitar has a crystal clear tone, with sweet bright trebles and metallic basses with lots of overtones. It also has exceptional clarity and note separation.
The neck has had a crack, but it has been repaired and refinished with a clear coat, undetectable by touch. This has no effect on the sound or playability.
It comes with a brand new foam hard case.
Top: High-Grade Solid Spruce with Ramirez bracing and supporting ring of wood glued underneath sound-hole/lacquer
Back and Sides: Indian Rosewood
Neck: Spanish Cedar with Rosewood reinforcement
Fingerboard: Ebonized Rosewood
Nut width: 52mm
String action is approximately 3.50mm under E6 and 3.00 mm under E1 with plenty of extra room on the saddle.
