Yes it's gorgeous, but look at the rest of their prices. A Silver Star for ?599?

If it's all solid construction, am I silly in thinking it's a shame the builder(s) didn't angle the wood a little better so the flame was perfectly horizontal? Beautiful wood, but could look so much better, IMHO.

yes, it's a solid top & back; not the laminated type

you can see it's solid; just look through the F hole & you can see the same flame pattern on the inside surface of the back

that's a LOT of cash for a guitar without fret edge binding

I have a LS-320 that could go for waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay less, lol...........

Good ole' Wizard Guitars : LOL!

They have a reputation for overpricing beyond belief.


They are a dealer to avoid in the UK, they charge retail plus 50%



It looks butt ugly with the flame at that angle.

Never been tempted to buy a Semi, because I never would know how the pups would sound - and swapping them is a different thing ... but that price is ridiculous ... who does he think he is ????

That guitar is as ugly as a bucket of smashed crabs! There is such a thing as too much flame IMHO.

For me, diagonal flame only works when it's bookmatched, not one piece. Bet it's a nice guitar to play tho'.

I think they've had this guitar on sale since last year? No surprise at ?3K.
