Up for sale is this vintage 1976 S. L. Mossman Tennessee acoustic guitar. We sold this Mossman about a year ago to a long-time customer. It just came back in on trade the other day and we're thrilled to have it back in the shop!

Cosmetically, the instrument is in very nice condition but does show some wear from over the years. It's clear that the guitar was played and well-cared for. There are no cracks or breaks. The original finish shows fairly heavy age checking and looks beautiful. There is a small section on the lower bout (in the arm wear region) where the finish has flaked a bit (pictured). The finish on the back has been sinking into the grain for many years and, just like the top, looks like a beautiful finish and a 50 year old instrument. Other than some small dings and scuffs, there is a small area on the back of the neck of "stand burn" (pictured). This can be felt while playing, but it isn't bugging us! A strap button has been added to the neck heel.

The guitar is structurally sound, with a good neck angle, plenty of saddle, and tight bracing. The bridge plate is starting to show its age, but still has life left in it before it will need to be addressed (we like to be transparent about these things!).

Our tech just cleaned this one up, cleaned and oiled the fretboard, and installed some fresh strings. The guitar plays great with comfortable low action all the way up the neck. The high E-string buzzes a bit on the 14th fret, but other than that, it's good to go. There is a K&K Pure Mini pickup installed and ran through the end pin, so this one is ready to hit the stage!

A non-original, used hardshell case is included. The case is in nice condition but does show some wear. The instrument will be well-packed inside to ensure safe shipping. These have become pretty sought-after, will dust a Martin from the same period, and are just genuinely great instruments. Don't miss out on this one, it's the nicest one currently on the market.
