Michael Kelly Club Custom 4N No. 2

I made this baritone guitar out of a brand new Michael Kelly Club Custom 4N factory second – there is a “B” mark on the 22nd fret. It took me a while to find the imperfections but it seems that there is a bubble in the finish by the nut and a small chip in the finish at the bass side of the nut. If you zoom in on the pictures you can see them. There are a couple of very small scratches on the back on the upper bout bass side that are invisible except when you turn the guitar just right in the light. Those things aside, this is one gorgeous, sweet sounding, and easy playing guitar. The owner of the other one I made loves it. Sold - Thanks Ken!
