This guitar has been set up by Luke Parry of Northern Beaches Guitar Repairs in Sydney, and as a result it feels super comfortable and plays beautifully in all positions.
This guitar is brand new – it has not been played live, in a studio, at a rehearsal … not anywhere. It was built for the enjoyment of the challenge, and then brought direct to PREMIER GUITARS to find a new home.
Comes in a new tweed coloured hard case.
