This is Jim's LeCroix model. 17' carved spruce top, tap tuned and is a head turner both in sound and looks. Check out the killer unique tail piece. I am the original owner and the guitar is in pristine condition, never gigged out with only in house use. If you're not familiar with these you're in for a treat. Jim was the head of the Gibson Custom Shop late 80's-92. His guitars are superb(I have a 91 Gibson Byrd he built also). One of the best on the planet. By far one of the LOUDEST unamplified tones on any archtop(and I've had plenty of them). Check gbase, his work goes for 6k and up. Just as much if not more to have one built plus the wait time.
This is a carved spruce top with flamed maple back and sides, ebony fretboard and has a Kent Armstrong floating pickup. The width at the nut is a very comforatble 1 and 10/16 inches. The neck profile is a nice C chape. Not to thick and not to thin. To me it's just right.
You can hear a sound sample at www.myspace.com/nramliak. I used it on Sunny playing direct into a 16 track with just a touch of reverb. I can also send sound clips of the guitar unamplified with just a mic running into pro-tools. Just forward me an email if you would like those additional clips or any other info.
$80 U.S. shipping and insurance without the buy it now. With buy-it-now it's free in the US......International IS NOT free and international bidders are responsible for shipping charges.
