It's being forced out. This one is about 5 years old, plays great. This guitar is a vintage yellow, neck thru, dual split coil humbuckers with 2 coil tap switches. There are no scratches or belt buckle rash. There are only a couple of teeny dings that I cannot get to show up. These run about 670.00 new. 375.00 with a Carvin hardshell case. Buyer to pay only actual shipping. Would prefer a money order to keep it on the down low from my wife. PM me if interested.
