  1. New-only 1hour of sound test.
    Here are the specs:
    Year Built: 2013

    Mother of pearl oval inlays $300
    Black poly finish $800.00
    and 24K gold plated hardware (a nearly $1000.00 upgrade charge!).

    The gold plating will not tarnish like the standard Alembic polished brass will.

    Scale Length: 34"
    Neck: SET NECK: 1.75", 5 piece Hard Rock Maple with Walnut accent stripes (this is covered by the black poly finish, but it IS the spec)
    Fingerboard: 24 fret Ebony with mother of pearl oval inlays. (No LED)
    Top: Flame Maple (again, covered by the black poly finish)
    Body: Mahogany (black poly finish)
    Finish: Black poly-gloss
    Pickups: Alembic MXY56

    Electronics: SIGNATURE ELECTRONICS - Volume, Pan, Low-pass filter for each pickup & a Q-switch for each filter (the Q-switch gives an 8db boost to the frequencies at the roll-off point of the low-pass filter). If you are familiar with Wal electronics, these operate in much the same fashion.

    Hardware: ALL 24K gold plated with Solid brass bridge and tailpiece, solid brass adjustable nut, gold Alembic/Gotoh tuners, Straplocks (not flush)

    FS Price: $2850 shipped OBO
