When I saw this for sale here on the forum I wanted to cry. I was pretty sure it would be gone quickly. I knew I could put it on a card, but the wife probably wouldn't like it. Long story short she said yes but no more new gear for 6 months. Luke packaged this really good, and after what seemed like forever, she finally arrived. Thank you Luke !!! This guitar is rather cool. It's like a 335 and a LP had a kid. It's actually heavier than my AS-1000. The back is a 3 pc slab, that has been hollowed out to create chambers, and the top is all carved out from a maple slab as well. Unplugged this thing sounds wonderful. Plugged in I had to adjust my eq a bit on the amp, but I love it. There has been some discussion about what the fret board is on these. This one sure looks like ebony. Porn just cause she's so hot. LOL. I love how the color is almost tiger eye. Oh my. A couple shots with my AS-1000 so that you can see the size difference.
