    Hi,
    I purchased this baby three days ago from a Craigslist ad. The previous owner had it listed as a Korean guitar, but he was mistaken. This is a 1999 model, just fantastic. There's not a scratch on it, nor the case. Purchase price - $800

    Beaut - nice, gently used Proline for the price of admission to a 5420 Electromatic. Do the math. Well done.

    That's really a fantastic deal. Fortuitously, you were in the right place at the right time. Hope you really enjoy it. I have one just like it and love it, but I paid a whole heck of a lot more when I bought it new.
