The scale/length of the string should be measured from sadddle (bone)till nut..the most probable scale is 650mm.
Neck it is made from spanish cedar or mahogany, if it was made from rosewood the color of the neck should be same as bridge, or close to that.
good luck!

Thank you for your help! I looked up how to measure scale length and it is 650 mm.

When I bought this guitar from Holtier - he told me that it was a special guitar that he had made for a convention. The back of the neck is clearly not rosewood -- it does not match the saddle. I investigated some chips of finished wood on the Internet (photos) and the pictures for Cedar and for Mahogany look very similar. Unfortunately, I cannot remember!!!

I did try to contact Holtier for some more information on the guitar, but I have not heard back from him.

I heard from Frederich Holtier and the neck is indeed unstained Mahogany (it is darker due to its age). He remembers this guitar and feels that it is actually worth more than the price I have put on it, but that it is a good price based on the current market.

Lovely looking guitar. This is an excellent price for a handmade instrument. Depending on how it plays, a bargin? To bad I didn't know about this when I was in Cleveland Heights about a month ago visiting family. GLWS.

It is much more beautiful in person and has a very nice full sound. I think that $3,250 is a steal!
