    I came so close to buying it, but I decided to go with an acoustic. I have never seen one this cheap.

    I have no affiliation with the store, I don’t even know anything about the store. Maybe the store does not exist and it’s an old ad that is still up........Could be I guess. :eek:

    But I love the guitar. G400JV

    If nothing was a concern would have bought it in a heartbeat!

    must....not....click....that....link.....
    whew, made it.
    Actually, if it is as clean as it appears to be that is a good price with the original case. I only found a couple at other online stores that have them (out of production, only used are available) and that seller is offering at around $700 less than most others.
    They are beautiful top of the line archtops. Big babies, but sound incredible.

    Aye,they are quite lovely eh..:cool:

    I missed one back at the tail end of 2017 ,it was in Dublin or just outside Dublin,contacted the seller to see if they would ship,but they wouldn't ,but they would meet me half way.
    It was only £1100 which i thought was cheap as chips for over here.
    But within 24 hours i had a financial crisis ,and then my car started giving me trouble,turned out to be the coil.

    I don't think i'll get another at that price here..:(

    Be happy - their sound is as bad as their looks are good.
