This guitar body is NOT mahogany. It's northern ash, as requested by the original customer. Don't let someone BS you into thinking it's something it's not. I've answered a ton of emails about this guitar built in 2013. It was a PITA then, and it continues to be a PITA. Buy it if you want, but I'd spend some time scrutinizing the seller. If anyone tells you anything about this guitar, contact me for the truth. I stand behind my work, but I won't support misrepresentation.

In case anyone is wondering, I did NOT put the Fender decal on the headstock.

It pisses me off, but there's not much I can do about it. This guitar is cursed.



BTW, this is the one that caused me to raise my prices to a point where only serious buyers step up.

Word to the wise, don't let a sob story influence you. Lesson learned here, and this one keeps biting me in the ass. Evil or Very Mad

I have one in my history exactly like that. Basically, it's what put me off actively trying to sell to people I don't know.

Hard to tell on my monitor, but is the TR plug painted to match the body?
