The guitar is in original condition with no changes or repairs and only the lightest fret wear to allude to the guitar having been played. Weighing in at only 7.3lbs it has a lively ring to its acoustic tone and plugged in the pickups have a bright, percussive sound that avoids sounding spikey or thin.  sounds. The neck has an instantly comfortable profile with a nut width of 42.18mm and a depth at the 1st fret of 21.26mm increasing to 23.56mm at the 12th fret.

This guitar is one of the first 1500 guitars shipped so it comes with a collection of stencils and stickers designed by Shepard Fairy as well as the the Black Tolex Fender Case.
