This guitar is used, but you would never know. It was delivered in late Sept of this year and has NO wear. Mint. It has the most beautiful Madagascar Rosewood back and sides. It looks like the sister to a Signature Dread I sold earlier this year. The top is very unusual in that the Adirondack has some bearclaw going on. Brazilian board and headstock overlay. This is hands down the best sounding slope D I've ever heard. Loud and clear.
