This Duolian was previously owned by Charlie Starr of Blackberry Smoke. It was featured in Vintage Guitar Magazine in 2020. Charlie quoted to Vintage Guitsr Magazine about this Duolian “It’s got some rust here and there, but it’s a good one” The neck on this Duolian is a large V shape. It has a very old refinish believed to have been done in the 1960’s. It has various dings, scratches on the body and finish checking on the neck. It has some “rust” spots on the front where the original pickguard was for years, also a couple small holes where the screws were that held the pickguard. The pickguard is not included. The guitar has been gone through by a luthier well versed in vintage resonators and give a great bill of health! Includes non original hardshell case.
