I was about to switch to these, but subsequently didn't. One is in 9+ condition, one is 8+. Both are strung with cheapie synthetic gut at mid tension. The grips on both were swapped to the TW thin leather grip, and are overgripped with pretty fresh Tournagrips. The 8+ one has scratches on the sides, but no chips and is still extremely structurally sound. pjnelson AT stthomas DOT edu $80 shipped each, or $150 shipped for the pair.
