Since i bought the Bongo, my Traben has got little work. In fact, I only played it out twice. I like this guitar -- it's got a nice sustain and modern rock sound -- but I just don't use it and it's just sitting in its case in my closet. As you can see it has a nice orangeburst finish. Basswood body with quilted finish, 5-piece Maple and Walnut neck, 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard, Tribal Flame bridge design, Traben Custom Combo pickups and T3 Active Preamp. It's very eye-catching. Got a lot of compliments on it. No issues. Virtually in new condition. no major nicks. BRAND NEW, this is a $650 guitar without the custom, Traben hard case (which is another $125). HOWEVER, I'm going to let it go for $475 shipped to continental US locations. TRADES WILL BE CONSIDERED, BUT BE REASONABLE. please don't offer me a Dean or a Squire or something...please.
