This guitar is pleasing to look at but has minor cosmetic flaws; it’s not of the high, professional quality expected from guitar manufacturers.

It’s been heavily modified. But it hasn’t been used much.


As for intonation...I’m not an expert at that. This guitar REQUIRES INTONATION, IF it can be intonated close to perfect at all. That would be the buyer’s responsibility...I’m selling this guitar AS IS. This guitar is not returnable...if you can’t intonate it, or don’t like anything else about it...it’s still yours to keep once you buy it.

I completed all the work I want to do on this guitar in 2022. The remainder of getting it to sound correctly is now up to whoever buys this item AS IS. I don't offer any guarantees...take your chances, or don't. Maybe, you can complete what I haven't been able to accomplish.
