What We Think

Condition: Virtually unplayed except for smallest amount fretware under in the 1st position and some light finish scratches that could not be captured in the photographs.  

It's great to see am instrument come through the shop that was produced locally! I love its sleek body contours and striking top. An original design on the double humbucker/mahogany guitar is often hard to find but this one really has a special aesthetic that I admire. This one is the very instrument used in their catalogs! It has a variety of tonal options with independent push-pull knobs for tapping the Lindy Fralin humbuckers. A nice perk that allows anything from more fat LP style tones to T-type single coil grit. For those looking for an interesting and handmade design, this guitar will be sure to satisfy!
