My "Gibson style" experiment is over (for the time being, of course). I'm more comfy w/ Fender style guitars.
Thus, am selling a wonderful example of Japanese craftsmanship. Instead of getting into the "it's just as good as" stuff, I'll instead say that guitar gets you into that wonderful Duane/Jimmy/Slash tone field well and for much less money than other big, set neck, mahogany, ebony fretbaorded alternatives.
It's hard to imaging a 35 YO guitar in better shape. But it's not mint.
* pickguard is slighly warped
* friction marks exist where the guitar headstock rested on a wall mounted guitar holder
* one very small scratch on back of neck
* 2-3 REALLY small dings that require effort to find.
Action is on the low side. Weight, well let's just say not so low.
Comes w/ OHSC in nice shape.
No trades please.
