Condition: Excellent. Under close inspection we found a very fine and short crack (approx 30mm) on the underside of the head joint. This appears to have happened where part of the wood grain was a bit wavy. Once sealed with a touch of blackwood dust and cyanoacrylate and polished out, one can't find where it was and does not show in close photographs. See the last two photos. Pictured in the case was when the crack was discovered. The following photo shows the repair.
Awesome flute by Glenn Watson of Galway, Ireland. Light in the hands. Lovely hand tooled silver key work. Medium sized holes yet still has great power and dynamic range. His flutes are generally modeled after Rudall & Rose type flutes as is this one. Glenn currently has a 16 month wait. Really nice player!
