I really wanted to like this guitar but the neck is just too big for my tastes. It is all original except for the pickup covers which are aged a little bit more than the stock ones by way of a light buffing. I don't have the stock ones. The guitar sounds excellent and has a very open semi-hollow sound to it unlike many modern ES models that often sound more like a Les Paul. The Varitone is true bypass in the first position and has some very useful tones. It's not super heavy but I can weight it exactly if you're interested. The neck is large and round and feels a little closer to an R8 than an R9 to me. The only wear is a small chip in the clear on the body binding (maybe a millimeter) and some light surface scratching/hazing on the face of the headstock.

The guitar comes with the OHSC, COA, a set of gold Schaller strap locks, and for an extra $275 I'll include a set of unused Throbak aged gold Pre-T pickups, which are much like short magnet PAFs.

$3,400 plus actual shipping in the CONUS only. Trade value about $3,600. I'm not able to take pictures tonight but will post them as soon as I can tomorrow. Email bensmusic127@bellsouth.net for questions

TRADES (I'm open to a bunch +/- cash as needed):
-Vintage double cut Les Paul Junior
-Vintage dual pickup single cut Melody Maker
-Fender Brownface Super
-Vintage Martin 00-18E
-Vintage small body Gibson or Martin acoustics
