This was a custom 8-string build for the great jazz guitarist Joe Cinderella. It is inscribed inside the body “Serial # 0895-8 Custom 8 string “Songbird” made for my friend and teacher Joe Cinderella by Gary Mortoro”
Gary was a master builder and built guitars for George Benson and other jazz guitar heavyweights.
Joe Cinderella played this guitar tuned in thirds and its current owner Cameron Morgan tuned this EAEADGBE. To hear more: type Cam & Haley Live @ Poshette’s on YouTube.
The videos attest to how great this guitar sounds. Cosmetically, in Very Good/Excellent condition with light checking and some spots where two pieces of binding needs to be re-glued that are in the original hardshell case.
There is a picture of an inscription inside of the guitar from Gary to Joe.
