A000D - Finn
Interesting example, came up for auction with an asking price of $3,704 and finally sold for $2,300 in January 2014. Of note, the seller says the serial number is A877D, but didn't include a picture. That has to be wrong, because we came across another DA with that same serial number and the other one is verified with a very clear pic. Oh well, maybe some day we'll be able to properly catalog this guitar. In the meantime, it will have to be known as the 'Jerry Finn' guitar.
