Another hoped I'd never sell from my vault! This is an absolutely gorgeous early Cole's Eclipse 5000. Beautiful heel carving, original bone tailpiece, Champion tuners, Rogers skin head. Plays and sounds fantastic. Can take steels comfortably but it really sounds best with nylguts. Replica period bridge and all original hardware. Has had a neck reset and the screw on the neck collar has been broken since I bought it. I've seen better engraving but it's pretty durn nice. I'll put up a video tomorrow.
