This guitar is absolutely beautiful. The workmanship is excellent from the Samick factory in Korea where they have been making guitars for over 40 years. The quilted maple looks gorgeous (see pics). This is a true full sized jazz box and there are numerous videos out there you can listen to. There aren't any dents, chips, or scratches, and the frets have tons of life left in them. Doesn't look to have been played a lot. I've had it for 3 years (at least) and I've barely played it. Note: I had the finish professionally removed from the back of the neck--it's nice and smooth w/ great feel. Comes with a beautiful Samick hardshell case w/ a leather handle. Classy.

$499 + Actual shipping.

My guitar slinging buddy prefers them over any of my other guitars.

Got his brother hanging on the wall at my house. Hard to beat for the money. I got a real deal because it stayed on the rack forever at the local store mostly frequented by metal players. Come to think of it, those two basses were similar stories.

I've been through Samick's factory in Korea. It was pretty impressive. We cut Sitka Spruce for them, which they used in their Guitars as well as their Upright and Grand Pianos.
