Beautiful Blonde Figured maple cabinet Fessenden. SD-10 3X5.
Looks like a Mark Giles cabinet, but I can't say for sure. Very high quality. Beautiful inlay and pearl inlay logo. The fretboards are standard Fessy long horns, in Ex cond. The Zum fretboard is not attached, and is just there for me. Zum fretboard does not come with the guitar, and is not for sale.
I installed an upgrade (L-710) pickup. I fixed some X-shaft binding issues.
I added X-shaft flex bumpers and made a smaller pad with much higher quality motorcycle saddle vinyl, and better foam.
I did a precision set up.
The guitar plays and tunes beautifully and sounds great.
Not pristine but almost so... I'd say a conservative VG+ cond.
Price is $2950 plus shipping and ins.
Preference for local pick-up. Comes with faux tooled tolex covered
case in Ex cond.
