Michael Kelly Club Custom 4N No. 4

I made this baritone guitar out of a factory refurbished Michael Kelly Club Custom 4N. It has the word USED stamped on the back of the headstock. It appears to have been used very lightly since it was refurbished. The only thing I noticed was some black truss rod wrench marks on the neck binding inside of the sound hole - you can see it in the picture. Other than that, this guitar is in fantastic shape. The cedar top is substantially darker than the previous guitars I have made from this model and if I read the serial numbers right it may be a 2003 model. This guitar has the same low action and great sound that the other three I have made have made. This one could be the very nicest one to date. Destroyed by freight damage.... what a shame....
