The Octavius has been a regular in the Fylde catalogue since the 1970s. Its fixed bridge gives it a warm, mellow sound, and it is described on Fylde's website as being 'ideal for song acompaniment.' Its guitar string length (630mm) suits the GDAE tuning particularly well, but a variety of tunings and string gauges can be used.
Close-grained cedar top, rosewood bridge. Back is attractively figured mahogany; straight-grained mahogany is used for the sides. the neck is mahogany, with an Indian rosewood fingerboard. Gotoh machines. Fitted with strap buttons to end block and heel.
According to the Fylde website, the current list price is £929. This instrument was probably made in the mid-1990s (serial no 374x, in case that means anything to anyone), has been played infrequently and is in excellent condition. A few pick marks and one small ding near the treble side of the soundhole, and a couple of superficial marks on the back, and that's about it. No playing issues at all - the neck is straight, the frets only show very light wear, and the action is low and easy - around 1.5mm at the octave.
Complete with high quality fitted case, in good condition.
