Hi Folks,
I recently acquired this F-15 circa late 1970's...maybe 1976 based on having only 20 frets.

I had an F-05 previously that was a bit big, and I never got very comfortable with it.
This one has as smaller body, and thinner neck. So far so good.

Cool looking guitar...thanks for sharing.
Description in the link you provided didn't mention the double dots on the seventh fret. That's a new one to me (even as a 37 year veteran to guitars); aside from aesthetics, what is the significance of that? Different tuning? Intonation at the 7th.?
Perhaps I HAVE seen it before and either forgot, or didn't pay attention.

The double dots at the 7th fret seems to be present on this whole series. My old F-05 had the same double dots on the 7th fret. Hmmm...

Plenty of info on the web about the seventh fret double dots. But it's all are opinions, not definite answers.
Related to intervals, tradition, symmetrics, help marks - choose your favorite option or all/none of the previous.
They show up on other brands, too; e.g. on some Martins.


BTW, there actually isn't an extra dot on the seventh fret of the F-acoustics, the third fret dot just wanted to relocate. :mrgreen:

Bought it on kijiji.
It was $200 Canadian. Probably could have got it for less.
The series F-15 through F-75 show up from time to time, and a few F-03 and F-05 show up as well.
