The guitar has been played and looked over... Things I noticed. All pick-ups and electronics are working.. the neck pick-up has a low output. The other 2 middle and bridge sound amazing. the truss rod was checked and works. The pick-guard is a really light green, is really nice but has one small crack at the neck pick-up mounting screw. (very easy fix.) The pick-up cover at the neck position is a bit warped. The pots are a bit scratchy but went away after using it for a while. There is free wear and fret board wear as well. Still playable. I put new strings on it. could use a better set up. But it plays all day...There is some oxidation on some of the screws, and the tuners all function but a few seem a bit loose, wiggle on the inside.
Overall, This is a great opportunity to get and amazing rare guitar for great price and make it your own. I could easily bring this back but why not let the next owner make it there own... The guitar has everything you need.. all the parts are here... these are going for 30,000 and 40,000 dollars in original condition... someone is asking 14,000 for a loaded pick-guard... These are really rare..
Okay, I am going to list this as a .99 cent No Reserve Auction...
I do reserve the right to end the auction early..
