The top was professionally and beautifully painted by Rowyco Kustoms in Durham, NC. It is factory perfect.
The back was not refinished, and while it is in great shape it has been played and has some minor wear. The worst of which is a tiny ding on the top of the headstock which you can see in the close up photo.
The binding has yellowed. The pickups are original and the hardware shows some pitting.
Plays like butter, screams like a banshee, and looks like a million bucks. This Paul Stanley dream machine was made by the geniuses at the Fujigen factory in Japan. They have built legendary guitars for years.
Original unbranded hard shell case is included.
Is this the only one on the planet? As far as I know it is and if you buy it before I change my mind it can be yours.
Thanks for looking!
