I hunted this down for a year, sounds awesome, but too small for me, so I'm moving on to the committee. I haven't seen an example this clean after extensive searching across the country. Everything works, no cracks, breaks repairs. Hardware, frets, electronics original and some case candy. Previous owner was a musician and took excellent care of this instrument. Played but well maintained and respected. Bigsby (no new holes) installed but original tail stop included if the bigsby doesn't work for you. Original case, latches and handle intact. The DiMarzios are hot and dynamic, phase switch and coils split push pull knobs, lots of tonal options. If only I was a foot shorter and 150lbs lighter. Access to the upper neck is incredible, but my huge gut gets in the way. Keeping the gut, passing the guitar on. Send an email for questions or offers. Harper.email@example.com A true "beast".
