“This is a previously loved item and as such does have signs of use. The most notable of the dints is on the binding of the body. There are other minor dints and scratches and a crack in the neck which looks as though it has been previously fixed. All these are pictured and they do not affect sound or playability. This guitar sounds great unplugged and plays really well, but once it’s plugged in it really comes into its own! The L.R Baggs pre-amp system is top drawer and makes this guitar sound absolutely amazing. I personally have restrung this guitar with D’Addario 12-54, lem-oiled the fretboard, adjusted the truss-rod appropriately and polished the whole body. It’s well and truly good to go and is at a bargain of a price.” Kev Atherton – Rimmers Music
