A must-have for an unusually-shaped instrument that doesn't fit standard cases! ($199 value)
Our impressions? This is a killer instrument that exceeded expectations when it arrived. Plays great, solid build, gorgeous looks. Photos with the white background are stock photography. Photos with the brick background are the actual item you will receive. Note the pickguard and pickups still have the protective plastic, which you will remove, as well as the little paper tag showing you which knob is the push/pull switch. As for tiny identifying imperfections every instrument has but nobody will ever see but you... 1) tiny finish flaw by the raised middle section, near where the upper bout meets the neck, only visible in certain lighting/angles--see photo. Looks like this may buff out, but wouldn't wipe off easily. 2) tiny, <1mm, spot on the right side of the tailpiece--see photo. Frankly, we didn't notice either of these things until we put the photo lights on and were looking closely to wipe off any dust specks or fingerprints.
