Up for sale is a gorgeous, VERY clean Samick Greg Bennett Design "Lasalle" JZ-4 arch top. It has a suspended Johnny Smith-style mini-humbucker with volume and tone controls mounted on pickguard, making the select spruce top completely acoustic.








Asking $549 + shipping (cash, PP f&f, personal check from long-time active forum members). Can do regular PP, but you must pay the 3% fee.

Soon after buying the guitar, I had a custom fret job done using jumbo wide and very low frets adding a nice radius to the fingerboard and adding significant value (plays like a dream!). As you can see from the photos, I also had the lacquer professionally removed from the back of the neck - similar to violin construction - giving the instrument a satin-smooth feel with dramatically increasing playability. And just look at that tailpiece! She's an art deco beauty. Features include:

Single Venetian cutaway Quilt Maple hollow body
Bound, arched select Spruce top
Mahogany set neck
Nut width 1 5/8”
Rosewood fingerboard (12” radius)
Block inlay
20 fret, 24 ¾” scale
Gold hardware
Grover™ A102G, 14:1 ratio tuners

The neck is capable of extremely low action (plays like a dream!) and is currently strung with medium-gauge (13-56) flat-wound strings. Comes complete with original custom hardshell case w/ leather handle.

I take very good care of all my instruments; this one has exactly the same WoW! Factor as it did when it was brand new...more even.

I would love to find this guy a good home. It's a great guitar at a steal for ...HURRY!

... you'll NEVER find a finer arch-top guitar at this price.

Reduced from $699 dow to a steal at $549. That's $150 less than I'm asking on Reverb. Going to auction on eBay soon!
