Originally made for George Cordoba but returned for reasons unknown. Copied from a Selmer supplied by Cordoba to Souza, I’ve owned this guitar since 1975 and believe it to be the OLDEST Selmer copy made in the US.
Restored in 2010 by Bill Reinhardt (repaired numerous cracks, a hole in the back, re-colorization, re-finishing, re-fretting and other cosmetic/aesthetic detailing) this guitar is now gorgeous.
