Body: Maple

Neck: Medium “C” shaped neck, 1 9/16” wide nut, ebony fretboard, and a scalloped radius

Pickups/Hardware: Gibson tuners, two pickups (rated at 12.3 kOhms in the neck and 12.3 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: The top is looking great, with a bit of edge wear (mostly at the points), finish wear on the hardware, as well as a handful of dings and scratches. The back and sides show a substantial amount of buckle rash, as well as several dings, scuffs and scratches. The original route for the jack located on the inside of the treble-side point is unfilled. The neck is nice and glossy, though there are several small dings to be felt upon its surface. The headstock has moderate edge wear, and a few small dings, but overall is looking good. This V2 is Very Cool!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: Rewired with new components. Replaced knobs and switch tip. Jack moved to top (new hole routed). Replaced bridge, and studs. Scalloped finger board.
