Nice guitar as advertised. Had this one plugged in half an hour after it arrived, and it's gorgeous,. I'll probably put an original saddle back on it, for the 'woody' tones.. but sweet!

I bought the kay Galaxie guitar.
was described as in perfect structural condition (I have all the mails with the seller).
It arrived after 4 weeks (170 € shipping)
neck was broken and repaired before and the fretboard was unglued from the first to the third fret!
the frets were almost completely worn out.
the seller does not respond to emails!
Stay away from this seller.
