Bold yet elegant; Classic, but modern; Beautiful and functional with every bit of tone you want from this Art Deco solid body Metropolitan guitar.
One, solid straight and true, piece mahogany set neck is paired with a rosewood fingerboard that plays fast and smooth. Featuring mother of pearl inlays and a beautiful Art Deco designed headstock.
Exotic African Fakimba body is scooped at the edges creating a raised top and back. The grain subtly shows through the cream finish. There are a few blemishes and all pictured. One chip out of the finish is on the top treble side lower bout. Another one is on the bass side lower bout about the custom tailpiece. On the crown of the cutaway there are a few scuffs and a slight ding. Along with a great design the guitar sounds awesome as well.
Featuring a set of Rio Grande Pickups (neck Texas Humbucker, bridge BBQ Bucker) the tone out of this art work can't get any better. All electronics (2 volume, 2 tone, one 3-way PU selector) are fully tested and 100% functional.
Hardware is all custom original. The Art Deco detailing through really adds depth to the guitar. Pick guard shows minimal pick scratching. Tuning machines are tight and keep tune well.
TKL fitted hard case is included in sale.
