Not sure I really want to sell this guitar because of the sentimental attachment, but I figured I would offer it for sale just in case anyone is interested. I will probably regret it if this guitar does sell since Jon Delaney was one of my biggest inspirations when first starting to play gypsy jazz.
This guitar used to belong to Jon Delaney. Here is his original ad from 2016: https://djangobooks.com/forum/discussion/15020/

As you can see, it is a well used guitar. I think the pictures show the condition much better than I can describe it. There are cracks and bumps, but all the cracks are stable it should not be an issue.
The original bridge and shims are included. I had another bridge built for it and the action is around 2.8mm low E & 2.5mm high E and the guitar plays fantastically.
As of January 2024, I had a set of vintage SB tuners put on the guitar.
There are lots of videos of Jon playing it so you can get an idea of how it sounds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKz2lrHGkfQ
