    Here's a chance to get your hands on a ONE-OF-A-KIND, custom Cliff Bordwell without the wait!

    Beautiful and unique buckeye burl top, super light (~7lbs) and very well balanced with no neck dive whatsoever. Passive electronics combined with high quality tone woods and Lollar P/J Lollar pickups delivers some amazing natural organic sounding tones. Very low action without buzz and very "fast" neck.

    Only disclosure is that a couple of the frets have a very small nick on the wood, presumably where the wire was being installed by hand by the craftsman. Pretty unnoticeable and no impact on playability.

    Will ship with hard shell case, adjustment tools, strap, and a bottle of wax.

  4. Cliff consistently builds some of the most beautiful instruments I’ve ever seen. Super light weight on top of that. Amazing.

    Still interested in trading for the Eden combo? I'm just outside of Bucks county and have a 1997 Eden Nemesis NC200P 210 combo in good condition and would love to make the trade.

    Either way, thanks!
