A Rock N Roll Powerhouse.

This guitar has got it going on! First off, it's got tone for days. The clean sounds are nice and warm as you'd expect from an AR100 of this vintage, but this guitar is just begging to go into an overdriven amp. And oh does it payoff. The driven sounds are creamy and full, very Gibson esque in nature. The V2 pickups are nice and hot, they really make the upper midrange sing, perfect for cutting through the mix. 

The guitar does a have a couple of notable battle scars, which can be seen in the pictures. Significant belt buckle worming through the finish is present on the back as well as some dings on the back of the neck at 5th & 7th frets. There is a 3/8” chip through the finish on the bass side face trailing edge. There is also a lot of chipping at the upper strap button. The gold plating is worn off the tuner buttons, bridge edges and tail piece extension which is common. Top shows nice figuring & color. Plastic parts have yellowed nicely and show no cracks but binding is starting to shrink so cracks may develop in the future. 9 pounds 10 ounce- very stout. First five frets have flattened under the plain strings but they’re tall enough for a fret dress.

As always, this guitar has been professionally setup by our luthier so it is ready to play right out of the box. It ships UPS Ground fully insured. Grab this insanely great instrument today!
