What you see here is a one off Cole's Presentation Eclipse with a Tubaphone style bracketband. It is the only one known to have been produced by Cole's - with 5000 style engraved inlays and a 1910s style Cole peghead. The heel carving is spectacular and the equal of nearly anything produced by the classic Boston makers. Obviously the rim is special and unique: it is extra thick (3/4") with a traditional Eclipse ring (though with slightly more pronounced posts under the ring, all sitting on the beveled rim top). It has a complete set of original Cobra hooks and its original Elite tailpiece. It is all original with the possible exception of the period Champion tuners (it was played as a plectrum with geared Ludwigs for a long time) and a new skin head/bridge. It is in as-new condition. It sounds and plays like an absolute dream. 10 7/8" head, 27" scale. Comes in its original bump case. Drop me a line if you're interested. There won't be another one of these.
