Aria FEB No. 4

I made this baritone guitar out of what I believe to be a 1997 factory 2nd Aria FEB. It appears to be a factory 2nd due a small seam where the cutaway meets the neck. It is not obvious. Other than that, this guitar is in great condition and sounds as good as any guitar I make. This is also beautiful and looks as good as it sounds with a very nice abalone rosette and mother of pearl head stock inlays. The action is low and it has a nice thin neck profile that plays like a dream. I have finished it with a sound port and gold tuners. The one of my Aria customers said that his Aria sounds like a grand piano compared to a Taylor baritone being a smaller upright. I am selling this guitar on eBay for $549 without a case. As of this writing I do have a used hard shell case in very good condition available for an additional $75. Sold - Thanks Harry & Alfie!
