Guitar is in great shape, plays excellent. Sounds awesome with the pickups in it whatever it is it sounds great. Guitar is very high quality, says USA on the headstock but there are no other makings on guitar so who knows where it was made. Fretwork is great, guitar will need minor adjustments when it arrives at your door. Stays in tune great and is ready to rock. Please remember that this is a used instrument and there are many swirls, scratches and a few dings. Due to the finish, they are hard to photograph but they are there. None detract from the playability or sound of this instrument.
