Made in Japan late 70s (presumably 76)
Rosewood back and sides
Probably all rolled
Handle rather thin and fairly flat profile
The format is a classic dreadnought
The presentation is excellent.
The handle is nice .. for those who love handles close enough. I personally prefer the wide sleeves.
That of Concord 696, is to take a recent reference, fairly close to that of a Cort Earth 100
The ergonomics are good (well like a dreadnought, this plan anything special report)
The bridge is adjustable, in spite of it on mine action is a bit high, even for ringing chords, not for solos
The sound is really good though. relatively low credibility, rather crystalline treble. We not fall backwards, but again for taking a reference widespread Ibanez I had this along with a Cort Earth 100, usually unanimously hailed as a very good entry-level, well the old Ibanez is frankly better with a warmer, less metal ect .. especially in the bass.
I stumbled upon it.
they are old guitars that have no value today and can recover for a pittance. Mine is in fair condition .. necessarily more than 30 years she lived, but the sound is nice.
Not necessarily need to pay expensive but these are excellent Concord 696 have a scratch in a corner, take a weekend or on a holiday without trembling in case something happens to them.
