picked up this at a rummage sale for a church function. heard from outside the area and kept hearing a cannon of a sound on it. I requested to play it and check it over, was very impressed with the projection overall, and purchased it. ser #77845. Thought it may be a g36 bl, but after finding the arched back info, realized it as the 44. LOVE THIS GUITAR. has a notable crack that just developed on the treble shoulder about 3-4 " and taking it in for a lookover/repair. Did I say I love this Guitar?
