Linke Custom Built, Hand-Made, Hollowbody Electric Guitar is in excellent condition and perfect playing order. Comes with a hardcase.
With the exception of a pen-sized indentation on the back of the guitar's body, near the center, it's in immaculately clean condition!
There's not a lot of information about Dick Linke, the builder of this guitar. All of what's known is he lived in Kirkland, WA, and built mandolins and electric guitars. He passed away around 2010.
The craftsmanship of this guitar is truly outstanding. High attention to detail, great or small!
The the top and back of the double-bound body are both 2 pieces of carved, solid, bookmatched flamed maple. The sides of the body are mahogany. Has a set 1-piece medium C profile maple neck, rosewood fretboard with 24 frets, MOP block inlays, and is equipped with Sperzel locking tuning keys and has a black tusq or graphite nut.
It's loaded with Carvin C22B and C22N Alnico V humbucking pickups, as well as the Carvin 502G active/preamp module. The 502G preamp offers the ability to operate as either passive or active, coil-tap each pickup, as well as a phase switch. The 502G unit has a date of 1997 on the board. Could mean it was installed new into this guitar in 1997, or was removed from a 1997 Carvin guitar and installed into the Linke. Both are possibilities but there's no way to know for sure.
Has a 1 11/16" nut width, a 25" scale length, and weighs 6 pounds 5 ounces.
