Fender BG-29 No. 5

I made this baritone from what I believe to be a 1995 Korean made Fender BG-29 that is starting to age nicely. I bought it as a hulk with no electronics package, no saddle and no tuners. It does have a few nicks and dings but for the most part it is a very shiny black guitar. Unlike the other Fender BG-29s that I have made, this one seems to play very well with a standard A-A tuning. With ultra light strings it should also be able to tune up to a regular E-E tuning. I have finished it with a new EQ package and pickup, a bone nut and saddle, chrome tuners, and a sound port. I am selling it on eBay with no case for $369. As of this writing I do have a used hard case available for an additional $75. Sold - Thanks Alex!
