    Time to thin the herd. This is a really extraordinary LP-style guitar. Mahogany body with flame maple cap. Fat tone at the neck, nice bite and growl at the bridge, and a coil split switch for extra versatility. The 25.5" scale gives it some snap and twang, while the slim neck and 15" fretboard radius make it a very fast and easy player for soloing. I've got the action set very low with no buzzing.

    There are lots of nice touches: 18:1 art deco tuning machines, a good roller bridge, 5-ply binding, and a tummy cut. The vibrato unit is their take on the Bigsby, and to my mind, they've improved on the design.

    I bought this guitar new in 2014 and have babied it since then. I don't gig on guitar (that's what my drums are for), so it doesn't leave the house. I'll include a gig bag with the sale.

    US $475 plus $50 shipping to Canada or $100 shipping to the lower 48. If you're overseas, message me and we'll talk.

    I don't understand why the trem on these is so much smoother than I've experienced from Bigsby but they are. I mean physically they aren't much different than a B5 but they work better for some reason. At least that is what I found. Good luck with the sale. That's a good price.

    Yeah, I've found that this vibrato is very smooth. I run the strings overtop of the tension roller, which gives me even smoother vibrato action while eliminating tuning problems.
