This was the very first D hole Kottke ever produced and used by the man himself. The Muiderman acoustic guitars are some of the best boutique guitars being produced. There is a story behind the D sound hole and most Leo fans know the significance of this feature. Since Leo is usually pretty tough on guitars there is some minor play wear. We have had many Leo guitars come through our shop and these newer Muidermans are definitely the best sounding and playing. Comes with a very sturdy molded plastic case.
