I built this instrument for myself in 2011 with the assumption that I would use it to learn alternate tunings. I never got
around to learning how to take advantage of a multi-scale guitar and have since then made myself another personal
guitar which I use constantly. This one needs to be loved and played so I am selling it. I can offer it at a nice discount, plus
I'll throw in a full warranty with the exception of aesthetics. It has a few very small and hardly noticeable marks, mostly on the top.
Details are below:

Master Grade and highly figured Madagascar Rosewood (this quality is very rare) back and sides and Mastergrade Swiss Spruce top. 
This it one of the most sought after rosewood tonewoods for both its stunning visual beauty and its rich tone. Swiss Spruce is a perfect
match for this rosewood as it lends plenty of power and high-end sparkle to perfectly balance out the tone response. 

This guitar comes equipped with a no-nonsense LR Baggs Anthem Series pickup for an amazing on stage presence.
