Andersen 1999 Metropolitan Reserve-Natural
'The Metropolitan is an archtop steeped in the New York City school of guitarmaking – yet designed with the modern player in mind. The Andersen Metropolitan is an inspiring instrument, whether being played purely as an acoustic instrument to drive a rhythm section, or playing single-note melody lines.
Construction details include hand-engraved mother of pearl inlays, ivoroid binding around the body, f-holes, neck and peghead, and the most highly figured domestic maple for back, sides and neck.'
This 'Reserve' model has upgrades that set it apart from the standard Metropolitan and is thought to be the only Metropolitan currently available made with European tonewoods. It does have light scratches and nicks from normal use, but that does not take away from the incredible look, sound, and playability of this guitar. The truss rod cover is not included.
