About This Listing

The 5 string model that inherited the traditional design of Sago is in stock! The 5-string JB model "Classic Style J5", which is based on the traditional design of Sago, which is steadily gaining popularity, has arrived! It seems to be made in 2013 from Pot Date.
The specs are not clear because the spec sheet is out of stock, but the 2P alder body has a thermo maple neck bolted on, a rosewood fingerboard, a nut width of about 45mm, and a long scale with a brim on the 21st floor. The "Thermowood treatment", which is indispensable for making Sago's musical instruments, is actively adopted to dry the wood in an oxygen-free state with a high heat treatment of 200 degrees, and it is firmly applied to the neck of this machine. increase. This makes it less susceptible to the effects of the environment and climate, keeps the neck, which is the life of the guitar, in a stable state, and makes it difficult to create factors such as strange warpage and twisting. Also, in terms of sound, the transmission rate of string vibration is increased, and a stable pitch and a uniform sound can be obtained for each note, which is a perfect element for multi-string basses, where that point is particularly important. .. The peg is GOTOH GB528, the bridge is GOTOH 404BO-5, and the pickup is equipped with the original 5-string single coil LxJB5. In addition, the stylish and visually appreciated specifications such as the fingerboard side dot position mark of the phosphorescent material are also a highlight. After all, the look of the black color with fine glitter exposed on the entire surface with the matching head is also a very cool finish! If you are interested, please do so as soon as possible! !!

It has been replaced with a Dunlop type lock pin from the time of arrival. The lock pin parts are out of stock, but they are shaped so that they can be used as they are. There are dents, scratches, and fine line scratches on the body as a whole, but thanks to the thin paint itself, there is no bad impression, and there is not much noticeable damage to the front, which is often seen. There are dents scattered on the neck grip and the back of the head, but there is no noticeable damage here either, and there is no problem in use. There are some dullness and scratches on the hardware, but there are no operational problems and it is relatively cleanly polished. There is no big problem with the neck at present, and the truss rod can be turned 90 degrees or more in the tightening direction. The frets have a slight string mark in the low position, and the rest is about 90%. Currently, it is adjusted by stretching 45-130 gauge strings, and the string height is about 2.5 mm on the 12F5 string side and about 2.0 mm on the 1st string side.
