    I'll keep it short.

    I had thought of getting another Callisto because I have more HB pups that need a nice home, after selling other more expensive HB guitars from which I kept my mod pups.
    Then I saw this for 99$. Done deal.

    B-stock. It has a good 1/2" impact gash on lower bout backside edge. Looks like a shanker worthy of any STD+ model.

    As I was hoping, it has the 1/2" maple cap and mahogany neck.

    The Rondo descriptions of STD+ still erroneously state maple neck and no cap on the mahogany body.

    7lbs, 5 oz.
    Fret edges are smooth. Plays well.
    42mm nut
    Tuners are like usual SX. Good. Not falling out of tune. Not 18/1.

    Transparent red back and neck. 3 piece body. Scarf joint on neck.
    Camera makes it look a bit clown burst. In actuality, the burst does tapper nicely and there are nice uniform vertical grain lines in yellow.

    Liam looks good next to it!

    If another 99$ STD+ comes around, I'ld tag it, too!

    I'm glad you bought that out from under me - $99 was a hell of deal. That bashed in spot wouldn't bother me at all. I really love my Callisto.
