A true masterpiece of a guitar, the Radio Flyer's name pays tribute to the radio's effect on modern music and John, himself.

From John Monteleone:

"It must have happened when radio was in its glory that New York had acquired the moniker of the Radio City. When I was a boy I would listen to radio quite a lot. We hadn’t yet owned a television until 1956. Even then the radio held its own and the transition to rock and roll really kept it on top.

"Through the radio and its waves I could travel the world. My imagination was nurtured by radio and most of the great guitar recordings I ever heard were brought to me via radio. I would eventually turn this influence into an inspiration for the Radio Flyer archtop guitar."

This example is in excellent condition with just a few small dings to note. The frets are in great condition as well and the guitar plays superbly. Reach out for a detailed, in-hand description!

Includes its original hard shell case.
