    NJ "Southern Half"

    Asking $1,500(net to me)

    From luthier Matthew Friedman (Acacia).

    -Top and back wood is Paduak
    -Core is Mahogany
    -Neck Through
    -11-piece Wenge neck with Mahogany core and Rosewood runners
    -Macassar Ebony fingerboard with Paduak dots and brass side markers
    -Dual Truss Rods
    -Bassline pickups
    -John East U-Retro preamp
    -Hipshot Ultralite tuners
    -Kahler bridge
    -34" Scale
    -Pre-amp controls are: Nearest neck=volume & blend, Middle=bass & treble, Near Jack=mid level & frequency. Switches: Near Jack=active/passive, Other Switch=pickup switch (blend mix=knob or both PU's=passive equal mix)

    -I would say excellent to near mint condition.
    -The John East U-Retro pre-amp including knobs/switches were just replaced and are brand new. When I received this there were some minor issues with the old John East pre-amp (switches were bad) so I took it to the shop and had everything replaced inside (pre-amp/switches/knobs were $325 + $115 shop costs). It is all set up (including new strings) and ready to go.

    -SKB Hard shell case
    -Strap locks

    Payment: Wire, bank check, Paypal.
    Shipping: I will include 2day fully insured shipping in US. No international sales.
    No trades please.

    D'oh! I should probably have moved faster on this. ;) If the lucky buyer decides it's not for him, he can shoot me a PM. Congrats on the sale!
