This is an outstanding guitar! Old wood, hide glue, Brazilian board, beautiful maple top finished in lemonburst with flecks galore. OX4 low wind pickups which came with the guitar and are just perfect (I've tried a range of top end PUs and went back to these) - the tone is clear, snappy, chimey, warm, frets are perfect and plays flawlessly. Neck is a very well rendered "C" shape. Subtle finish checking throughout, with a few nicks from usage which very much looks the part for a guitar that was created to be played - A very inspiring instrument, it really can do it all and there is just no substitute for old wood - you can feel it as well as hear it. Just under 9 lbs. Comes with a Gibson USA case.
For those not familiar, JamCity / Jim Weyandt is a master builder who specializes in working on old bursts and conversions - his site is worth a look (he is a builder to the stars): http://www.jamcityguitars.com/
One of my favorite guitars, but we just purchased a home and have to raise funds (so sorry but no trades). This is a lot of guitar for the money, especially since I'm pricing it to move (way less than I paid) $5850 shipped / PP'd.
