The guitar has some really interesting features, like the 18V active preamp, carbon fibre neck, and a floating trem with flush fine tuners.
The body feels really small, and the guitar is super lightweight.
The 6 position rotary selector gives some lovely sounds, and the guitar has an amazing clean tone, thanks to the carbon neck.
There is some damage to the side of the guitar, and the trem cover needs new screws. Also, the trem arm is broken. It works, but ideally needs a new one. It could also do with a good fret dress, as the first few frets have wear on them, and cause some buzz.
Any questions about this unique guitar, just ask!
I'm in Ireland, but am willing to ship, at the expense of the buyer. Asffor a price, I am open to offers.
