This is a beautiful guitar that has been completely checked out and is ready for a new home where it can be played and enjoyed.
The guitar has some wear on the hardware with some light scratches/stress marks around the sides of the guitar. Overall the front and back of the body are fairly pristine with just a few light scratches throughout. We took as many photos as possible of the various stress marks and light scratches. Where the neck meets the body, it may look like there is a crack in the finish, but it is not.
Includes manual and original hard case.
This beauty combines classic elegance and full-bodied tone with state-of-the-art technology and precision manufacturing. It has an arched sycamore top, maple back and sides, with a maple neck and 22-fret rosewood fretboard. The essentially acoustic, top-braced design has a spruce and maple center block to enhance sustain and overall resonance. Each detail is beautifully designed and carefully crafted, adding to the understated charm of the AES1500.
Thanks to custom DiMarzio humbuckers it has plenty of punch and edge, with 2 push/pull coil-splitting switches increasing its versatility. Expect solid, desirable tones that range from woody acoustic-like jazz tones to cutting blues and crunchy rock. Also includes gold hardware, 3-way pickup selector, and front/rear volume and front/rear tone knobs.
