8.8 of 10 Condition (some scattered scratches and sing, mostly on the back, 1 noticeable ding on the top, light plating oxidation)
All woods on this beauty are hand-selected for density and acoustic resonance.
The Lollar Imperial humbucking pickups impart an airy sound with unbalanced coils that create a tighter bass response with full body and complex overtones.
A combination of plekking and hand dressing leave you with consistently excellent playability and silky feel.
The super thin (.005 - .007 thousandth of an inch) nitrocellulose lacquer finish maximizes acoustical response while still providing durable protection for the instrument.
Oh, did I mention the Brazilian fretboard and neck binding - these are custom upgrades.
