I HATE to have to part with this guitar, but I have bills to pay, so I must thin the herd...

Hi, I see the chip in the pictures, are there any other scratches, nicks or chips?

Because their new owners are econo peddlers who have no idea what company they've got their hands on.

I'm hoping the custom shop is still in operation, even if their not doing production runs, because I really want a custom Idol someday...

the sad thing is, they got it all wrong, they should have gone about this in a very different direction
they already have so many economy guitar makers (Hagstrom, Profile, Jay Turser, Oscar Schmidt)
they should have made Washburn and Parker USA production only, kind of a flag ship makers of USMusic.

I have the Prototype for that guitar made for the NAMM show under Gil's supervision. Very nice neck! Very B*ker-ish in feel and substance. I might be interested in selling it. galejt@bellatlantic.net
