About this guitar - Why is it pre owned but in new condition ?
We originally sold this guitar a few weeks ago and it has now been part exchanged back into us to help fund a custom build version with a slightly different neck profile. Although technically pre owned, this guitar has hardly been played at all, and is in mint as new condition. The very regular local customer who initially purchased this guitar loves, it but wanted to order a version with a slightly different profile that replicated his other guitars.
