We have 2 of these for sale - matching drop tops (as in image but not identical). Great matte finish with huge non- feedback sound from passive piezo when plugged in. Chambered body allows for some weak and non-descript acoustic playing. Gotoh UPT with black tulip buttons,

Mmm interesting design there Pete surprised me I'll admit. Its rounder than I prefer but pretty damned trippy. I assume they are tenor sized and well out of my price range but nice to look at just the same.

I have always liked the old standard BC Rich headstock like the one on my 80's Warlock. Yours is similar just melted a bit.

I love this. The headstock kind of reminds me of a Victorian button boot :)

How about posting the price "per the rules"?

I believe that is why it was moved from the marketplace to here. Me I think its better in shameless self promotion but what do I know. I'm actually less interested in it now than before knowing they even existed if you can believe that.

Well forgive me folks but I have never posted in the marketplace so never read the rules. 575.

Pretty rude remark Al... tho tempted, I'll not return the insult ;)
