Owner Since 1983.

This was a working gigging instrument from 1983 until the early 1990's, so has the marks and the wear to show for it.
In 1989 the neck was broke at the nut and was repaired by Derrick Nelson in Rathfarnham.The neck was adjusted and secured at the body at this time as well.After the repair it went back to being a working instrument and 40 years later has not had a problem since.
It was stored in its case in late 1990's for 5 years and was revived and used in a home studio since 2005 until recently.

This is a rare guitar and only a few have been for sale anywhere in the past few years.This is a high quality Made In Japan instrument that was made at the height of Japanese Guitar Craftsmanship 40 years ago.
Original case also but has the wear of being in too many Hi-ace's,trucks, trains,planes, boats and ships for too many years. :-)

losh1068 1 month ago
@goatisland it would sound more Gibson than Fender. But can get a twang cos there is a coil tap on the humbuckers. Has a huge amount of sustain.

Cool thanks

@goatisland no problem. It also has built in active distortion based on the Tube Screamer circuit. So huge variety of tones can be got.

Awesome! The last one on here was mine and I miss it dearly. Never seen one with a vibrato
losh1068 4 weeks ago
@ko'ran
The vibrato just sits into the tailpiece posts so can be changed back to original. Original tailpiece is included so both options available.
All pre-amp, coil tap and toggle switches work.
When this sells I will dearly miss it as well.

Interested, just wondering why you’re selling it after having it for such a long time, any issues with it?
losh1068 10 hours ago
@Cathound .
Have a bad back, unable to sit for more than 5 minutes with any guitar. Loosing sensation in tips of fingers. Have sold a few guitars this year already and all rest will go.
Old age :-)

No issues with it. Everything works. (which even surprises me considering it's age)

That’s crapwhat shape are the frets in?
losh1068 9 hours ago
@Cathound
Frets are kinda medium jumbo size. There is wear but not much so about 80% good.
