This is the guitar of Canadian luthier Edward (Ted) Thompson.

He unfortunately passed away last year in May 2023. He made more than 1,000 guitars during his 45-year career in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada.

In 1995, his guitar was tied with Martin for first place in an international North American guitar competition in which all the major brands were represented.

This model T1 is a concert size guitar with a Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back&side.

Overall, there are few scratches and no major repair marks. There is what looks like a repair mark on the back of the neck, but it is not at all uncomfortable, including the paint.

The neck is in good condition and the string height is 1.5mm on the 6th string and 1.0mm on the 1st string at the 12th fret.

The tone is tranquil and beautiful, responding delicately to playing, and richly expressive even with a weak fingerpicking touch.

A hard case is included, though it is unknown if it is genuine or not.
