I received a question regarding; Is the neck was bowed? This is my answer. not very much. As far as I can tell while holding the bass string down at the 1st and 15th fret... the distance, stand off, or bow at the 6th fret would be the greatest at the thickness of a business card or between 12 thousandths to 16 thousandths air gap between the string and the 6th fret. while holding the bass string down from the 1st fret to the 15th fret there is an air gap from the 3rd fret to the 10th fret and at the 6th fret it is between 12ths and 16ths.. I do not have my calipers here but I use a business card to gap my points at 12 ths on my 356 and I used the same card to do this measurement. A very advanced Guitarist named Michael Moskowitz from Sausalito Ca.just played this guitar and absolutely loved its action. he both played it with one of the slides pictured he also played it as a regular guitar with the cover on the nut.The action was very high with this cover but noted that it played very nice. Michael noted that the strings are very old and he said that it would sound even better with new strings. I hope that this information helps all of you. Also this guitar was played for most of its life as a lap or slide guitar and does not have very much wear to the frets. It was last played in the early 60's and has been in a dry climate controlled environment since. TIME CAPSULE!!
