Body: Mahogany

Neck: Maple neck with a “C” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, ebony fretboard, 9.5” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Original hardware, DiMarzio pickups (rated at 8.2 kOhms in the neck and 8.3 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: The top is holding up nicely with some light play wear and some scratching and dings throughout. The sides have some small finish chips and the back has some swirling / light buckle rash throughout. The neck has a ding or two but is smooth and playable and the headstock is looking good with minor edge wear. This Skyhawk soars!

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