Alvarez AB4102C No. 2

I made this baritone from what I believe to be a factory authorized re-manufactured 2010 Alvarez AB4102C and is stamped USED on the back of the headstock. I found one small ding on the top that is only visible in reflection and found no other notable imperfections while I was converting it. It was sold to me as being repaired for having faulty electronics. The Fishman package has been replaced with an Artec passive package that sounds very nice  It has beautiful mother of pearl inlays on the headstock and an abalone rosette. I have finished it with a sound port and gold and chrome hardware. These Alvarez baritones are among the best sounding that I make and among the most praised by their owners. The body of this guitar is substantially thicker than many of my guitars and the sustain is incredible. I am selling it on eBay with no case for $525 plus shipping. The last Alvarez I had sold in a matter of hours and I doubt I am able to get another before Christmas. This one is likely to be gone quickly too. Sold - Thanks Keith!
