Dual Pickup Gold Tone ABG-4

I made this baritone guitar out of a "B" stock Gold Tone ABG-4 The issue it had is that as far as I can tell was a little bit of roughness on the underside where the neck joins the body. I have smoothed that out and de-emphasized it. I used a used gold bass tuner on for the 6th string and the plating is a little worn on it. The other tuners are brand new.

This guitar features a solid spruce top, figured Paldao wood back and sides, and a mahogany neck. It has an Artec HT-MC dual pickup active pre-am and EQ that blends the piezo pickup and a sound hole condenser microphone. It has snowflake position markers, a mother of pearl headstock inlay, and a gorgeous abalone rosette. The action is nice and low and the sustain is great. This is a beautiful exceptional sounding guitar and someone is going to love it. I am not likely to get another one at this price so it may be a one of a kind. This exact bass is now selling on eBay for $525. I am selling this one on eBay for $550 without a case. I have a used black hard case that will fit it available for purchase domestically for an additional $75. It is too large to ship internationally - sorry. Sold - Thanks Istvan!
