From the still-polished frets and bright, untarnished hardware to the vibrant sunburst-on-ash finish and swirled, cocoa- and coffee-colored rosewood fingerboard, this guitar is in very good-plus condition. It comes complete with the excellent condition original plastic molded case and hang tags. In one of those inexplicable details inherent to the guitar world, the instrument appears almost unplayed, yet it is equipped with a set of straplocks. (Your guess is as good as ours.) A friend of ours who is an excellent country-jazz player stopped by while we were going over this guitar for the first time and volunteered to run it through its paces. Afterward, he used words like “three-dimensional,” “chunky,” and “robust” to describe the tone. It seems like he might have added “stout,” too, but we can’t recall for sure. Anyhow, we concur with his verdict, and think you will too. Although this isn’t a featherweight instrument, its substance lends it a certain midrange honk that will have you exploring everything from Joe Walsh-style chordal leads to soaring, Albert Lee-inspired scalar flights. An exceptionally punchy and contagious plank that might even inspire you to invent your own genre—might we suggest you call it “free-range twang?” 9/10. Sold!
