This guitar plays so nicely it's really hard to put down. I played it out just once having kept it as a studio instrument otherwise. The previous owner managed to put some small clear coat scratches in the back near the access plate which also has a related scratch. There are some other very slight signs of cosmetic wear which would buff out for someone who collects rather than plays but otherwise overall I'd give this guitar a 9 out of ten for finish.
The top is beautiful, the neck is incredibly fast and the tones are pure rock and blues. I love this guitar but I've retired and it's just sitting in its Custom Shop case which is in near mint shape... And that's a shame. So, it's time I send it on to it's next home. Whomever lands this will find that to play it is to love it and it's not hard to look at either.
