Crazy nice.

Excellent condition all around. If you look under bright light, at the right angle, you can see where the finish has faintly settled nicely with the grain, it looks awesome. Frets are super clean as well.

Plays and sounds outstanding as expected. These Melancon guitars are among the finest guitars I’ve had the chance to play.
Original hard case and case candy included. Note: the spec sheet has a serial number misprint, came this way. However, everything is correct spec wise.
