   "Older thin refinish was very well done. As mentioned, it has very light bracing. I suspect someone had once set it up for Hawaiian play using heavy strings and high action. Some top distortion and original bridge plate was split. Our guy did an excellent job replacing the bridge plate and the entire top is now 100% sturdy and stable. One crack below the low E pin (see photo 15) and several small back cracks are well aligned and tightly sealed. Cracks are innocuous and difficult to see on figured koa. Original bar frets are uniformly low but as mentioned, it plays great and intonates perfectly. A solid sturdy guitar that sounds wonderful and is ready for another 80 years of good service"
