I'd confidently claim this 2016, iconic resonator is one of the finest examples available. Purchased in 2017 from Rudy's Music in New York and shipped to the UK, the guitar has been part of a Mark Knopfler collection and has only ever been displayed.
It was given a full set up by the guys at Rudy's and remains in that superb playing condition, ideal for both finger picking and slide play alike. The neck is in great shape, no twists or warping, there is zero fret wear, even the original case is totally unmarked.
Supplied with the original case, the original Limited Warranty Card with General Guidelines sheet on Care of your guitar, a copy of the original order/receipt and the original Commercial invoice from when the guitar was shipped showing the import taxes paid in full. To put it simply, they don't get better than this!
