This is a 2009 Monarch elite 6 string with a stunning buckeye burl top and matching headstock. Super low action, a very fast neck and easy to play. The bass looks great but has been played so there are a few marks/dings on lower horn and a ding on the headstock. Nothing major but just letting you and there are other minor marks/scuffs but still a very gorgeous instrument.
