S/N: 691, built during 2002 at David Iannone's Morgan Guitars shop in North Vancouver, British Columbia.
This is a lovely 2002 Morgan Concert Cutaway Koa Steel String Guitar, in excellent condition. It's a full size guitar with a rounded Venetian cutaway, distinguishing it as an older model; most cutaway Morgans are now Florentine (pointed). The highly figured Koa back and sides are very attractive, but also add a warm brilliance to the tone.


Morgan guitars are built in North Vancouver, British Columbia by David Iannone; the company is named after Iannone's son. David Iannone was Jean Larrivee's last traditional apprentice, and as such traces a tradition back through Larrivee, Edgar Moench, who learned from Marcello Barbero, who himself learned from Jose Ramirez II, and finally to Jose Ramirez I and his own teacher, Fransisco Gonzalez in 1870's Madrid.


This instrument uses the Morgan Concert body with Venetian (rounded) cutaway. The top is Sitka spruce and the back and sides are nicely figured Hawaiian Koa with rosewood binding. Mahogany neck with grained-ivoroid bound ebony fingerboard and small dot position markers. Ebony headplate with Mother of Pearl and Abalone Morgan logo inlay. 25.5 inch scale length, 1.75 inch nut width. The rosette is Abalone and the broidge is ebony.


Original hardware with chrome Morgan branded tuners, Tusq nut and saddle. TKL hardshell case included.
