I was just driving around today and saw a Cash Converters that I was previously unaware of. Felt compelled to stop and found this. It's in really good shape, save for the little area where it looks like a stand didn't agree with the finish on the back of the neck and the tiny little ding on the back that are both pictured. The front is flawless. Came with the really nice Hohner soft case and heinous strap. This is the first one of these guitars I recall seeing in person. I've been playing it for a little while. Feels and sounds pretty nice. The factory push/pull pot is a really nice touch. I definitely get why people like these, but I'll probably end up trading it. I only bought it because it was such a steal. The last one that sold on ebay was a Sea Foam Green one that went for $300 BIN.

Sorry for the sucky pictures. they were taken with my iPhone because I didn't feel like breaking out my DSLR.

Totally worth $100. Nice find.

Thanks! I have an infatuation with art-deco era furniture. I have a dresser that matches the chest of drawers, but it isn't quite as impressive. The veneers on the chest of drawers are incredible. Here it is from a different angle with my Martin D-15M, which complements it nicely.
