About This Listing

Custom painted Hallmark Custom 60 guitar.  Part of Hallmark's Art Series guitar line.  Paint work was done by Jarrett - who's signature is on the back.  Guitar top has hotrod flames with some outer space planet/stars depicted on the pick guard.  The back reprises the outer space design in the bottom right corner.  Pickup covers are painted to match the top.  All gold hardware takes this bling machine to 11.

Headstock is signed by Bob Shade 2010, and on the top by two other people neither of whom I am ashamed to say I recognize.

(Thanks to JC who tells me that the two signatures on the top are Larry Collins and Brian Lonbeck, both long-time users of Semie Moseley's guitars.) 

Guitar is in mint condition with no dings, scratches, etc.  I was thinking of using it as a playable-display piece but I am downsizing to limited space so it is up for sale.  

This guitar with case is large and pretty heavy, so  I'm asking for a flat $150 to cover shipping.

CONUS sale only.  No trades please.
                                                                                                                                     
Edit 23 July 2021:  I received a question about the guitar's tone and the robustness of the paint, and provided the following answer: It does sound like a Mosrite. Suggest you check out youtube to assess the tone for yourself. There are several videos of great pickers playing surf tunes using the Custom 60. Got that great surf tone.
As for the paint - To properly answer your question I pulled the guitar out and did another inspection of the paint. The pickguard and body appear to be painted and then clear coated. I would expect these to hold up fairly well. However, the pickup covers are also painted and do not appear to have been clear coated. I would expect to see some wear on the pickup covers as well as the pickup surrounds. If I was planning on using this on a regular basis and wanted to preserve the pickup cover paint, I would probably replace the pickups with standard Hallmark black cover pickups. FYI - I would not expect the signatures to stand up to regular play. If you wanted to keep these I would suggest putting a clear pickguard over them. I put one on a Taylor acoustic and it was not noticeable.
One other issue I noted during this recent inspection. I did not previously notice a paint imperfection at the bottom of the guitar near the strap button. (I'm attaching two new photos for your review) This in not a dent or ding in the finish but rather an imperfection in the paint that was covered by the clear coat. The area is smooth to the touch. If I was going to guess it appears that the guitar has a silver base coat and that the next blue metallic coat did not adhere to this spot for some reason. Other than that the guitar is quite impressive.
Due to this recent find I'm going to edit my listing to account for this flaw - I've also reduced the price by 10%.
