Two Swedish Old Gura clear

Two Swedish-made GammelGura in the last batch have been sent away. Made the mistake of trying to save thin maple original fingerboards. It ended up with them having to be replaced with bubinga and ebony with a lot of extra work with neck turnover and bandages… luckily it is the result that counts and not the way there! One made by Nils Nilsson around 1890, the other by an unknown craftsman somewhere before 1910. Both were very good!

Nilsson was strung up with Newtone Heritage 0.12, the other originated as DADGAD with a special set from Newtone strings. Has placed orders for both of these string types.
