It took me ten years to buy this reso from Ivan. My late wife and I would go out and visit Ivan every summer and every year I would do my best to talk him out of it but to no avail.I bought this in 2007. It was being built for Mike Auldridge but decided what we all know as the Auldridge model Black with hearts and flowers. Ivan had built this with his four piece soundwell but had the idea for the mid body baffle and sound post so this was the fist one built. He removed the sound well and installed the mid body baffle and sound post and it is still being used today. This reso was also taken on tour by Vince Gill for several shows when he was deciding what reso he wanted Ivan to build him. Though the reso has no label inside it is number 27 and I have a letter from Ivan stating what I have said above. I will make a copy of the letter and include it with the reso. It come with a Feather lite case and was only taken out and played one time by me and has a quarter sized belt rash one the lower bout from my belt buckle also some bar dings on the neck other than that it is in excellent condition. When I bought the reso from Ivan he went over it put the osage orange inserts in it. I'm the one who found that wood and Ivan has been using it since. I have one more pieceI need to ship him as I now have no use for any. Im asking 2000.00 plus shipping. Any questions PM me,Thanks Cal. I'm not sure but I'm having problems downloading pictures. Email me at calinva27@live.com maybe I can get them to you that way.I had the reso out today and it does have playing wear on it just to clarify. Ivan played the reso exclusively while in the band with his ex Lauren in Storefront Congregation SOUND CLIP COPY AND PASTE http://storefrontcongregation.bandcamp.com/album/renaissance 2000.00 plus shipping in Cont.
