Spitfire is the name in tortoise shell at the moment, say what you like but I think you can see the difference ie clear, like it or not. I had to drill out the output jack hole as it was too small which was a little unnerving with some so exclusive.
The neck was sticky and the owner had attempted to burnish it and on inspection the lacquer was quite soft which wasn’t helping the situation. I burnished the area you play and managed to get it feeling smooth and frictionless.
After a setup I was happy with how this one played and the looks isn’t bad either.
