I know there is quite a bit of "controversy" surrounding these guitars recently with respect to their availability, but nevertheless they are esoteric, well playing instruments. This is a '98 BF96 chambered swamp ash with the rosewood neck and board (Novax), Barden pickups, and an additional piezo output. The guitar resonates like crazy, acoustically, but the Bardens, I feel, are too hot for the guitar. Anyone know what's going on with the company, of late? http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j168/rgsss14/DSC00601.jpg http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j168/rgsss14/DSC00602.jpg Enjoy.
