1952 Levin Deluxe

Regular price $7,500.00

Reluctantly parting with my '52 Levin Deluxe cutaway. Very few of these in the US, especially a cutaway in natural finish. These guitars are BIG, 18.5" across the lower bout. This one has had a recent refret with really nice EVO Gold fretwire. I've made a new pickguard for it out of a piece of gorgeous vintage 1920s celluloid. It will also come with the old tortoiseshell guard (off-gassing) and the factory floating Kjell pickup that attaches to the neck. It plays and sounds fantastic and is in good shape with no breaks, cracks, or repairs. Comes with a vintage hardshell case!

The finish has typical marks and small blemishes of a guitar from 1952, as well as a belt buckle wear spot through the finish on the back. That spot has been previously sprayed over to prevent any more finish loss. There's also evidence of a strap button install on the heel. A previous owner has also lovingly left their mark on the back of the headstock, which I think adds a nice little bit of character.
