    Selling an instrument I acquired from a fellow TGP member. Jack Briggs guitars are absolute masterpieces - the meticulous craftsmanship is immediately apparent in the tone, playfeel, and aesthetic of the instrument (the grain pattern in the Honduran Mahogany is *awesome*!). The neck carve is somewhere between an LPR9 and a PRS Pattern, incredibly comfortable and accessible even if you have smaller hands like I do. The sound, courtesy of the Duncan '59 PAFs, is throaty, rich and really brings out that iconic Mahogany "honk" in the midrange. Adding to the versatility is a 5-way switch, allowing for a few more pickup combinations and yielding more tonal variety. Furthermore, if you're like me and like to play unplugged late at night, the guitar is extremely resonant and sustains like none other, which is indicative of an excellent build quality and choice in tonewoods.

    It has an excellent setup, plays like a dream with very low, even action, and is in EXC+ condition with a very small ding on the lower bout, and very light stress cracks / checking in the Nitro on the back of the headstock (about 1/2" in size).

    $2400 trade value
    Willing to negotiate outright sale with interested parties
