Kona KSABNE No. 1

I made this guitar out of a brand new Kona KSABNE that arrived with the headstock broken off. I have repaired it and the break will never be a problem but in repairing it I remove the finish off of a large section of the neck. I covered that up by painting the neck with black enamel and steel wooling it so a very fast satin finish. The sound of this guitar is up there with the very best I make and I hope to be making more like it. Other than the neck cosmetics it is beautiful and has a very nice abalone headstock inlay and I have finished it with chrome tuners and a sound port. Since it is a repair, I am selling it on eBay for $349 – basically my cost and a couple hundred dollars less than if it were not a repair. As of this writing I do have a used hard shell case in pretty good condition available for an additional $75 + shipping. Sold - Thanks David!
