Wow really surprised by this the build quality and tonality are fantastic.
The headstock shows some signs of use a few minor chips and dents. The neck seems pretty un marked Ebony fingerboard and wide low frets show little if any signs of wear.The body has one major ding on the rear upper bass bout (pictured), the front has a few minor chips, but nothing too unsightly. The Wilkinson V100 trem is great and has the locking trem included. It sounds great, looks great, and rivals any of the PRS, Fender and Gibson guitars Ive had for tone and playability. _gsrx_vers_841 GS 7.0.16 (841).
