Description

Rare Tom Mates F2 guitar with added Fishman pickup. SOLD

You may know that Tom was Eric Clapton's go-to repair guy for many years and has made guitars for Ralph McTell, Fairport Convention and many more professional musicians. He made relatively few guitars, often to order but also sold a few through Ivor Mairants. I've never seen another like this, although it's quite similar to his Robert Johnson model. The top is cedar, the back book matched rosewood. Sides are rosewood too, neck mahogany with ebony fingerboard and ebony head stock cap. Tuners are Grover with ebony buttons. These are replacements, the holes left by the originals having been nicely filled but still visible.

Dimensions are: nut 44mm; scale length 632 mm; body length 520mm; width at top bout 296; width at bottom 410mm; depth at top bout 102mm; depth at bottom bout 115mm.

It's in excellent condition, no cracks or breaks, a few marks in the cedar top but nothing major. It's light, beautifully balanced and sounds great.
