Barry has been trying to sell this one for a while now. I remember when he first got it (there's a thread somewhere around here).....

Awesome guitar. I love the original small standard 'Mac' shape, and happy to see it being utilized in recent custom builds....

Hi guys. I threw it up in front of the group last year before I sold my house to see if anyone had any interest. From there my father died, my brother died and I relocated. Now that I am settled again, I figured that I would actually see if there was any interest out there. Happy to answer any questions. Guitar not getting used often and time constraints are greater but life is good. Don't "need" to sell. Just trying not to start a guitar museum.

Hi Barry,

Do you have any update about serial number ?
I think the serial is 20 to 40 range.
I am interested the PU selector without brass plate.
The simple square tailpiece is very eary example (before 15).

Hi Eiji

Never had it to the San Fran for inspection, in fact, never been out of my house. Rick Turner told me he was sure it was one of the first 20 based on it's characteristics. He said that the details were loose from one to the other then because they were basically making one off's. He actually remembered the instruments but didn't remember who he made it for.
