    2018-06-13 10.36.29.jpg This is an older mid 90s model ES95c acoustic electric.

    I spotted it at a local pawn shop a while back and put a few dollars down on it, dropped by a couple times and gave the a few bucks again ,then picked it up the other day :) ... It came with an older hardshell Takamine case that's like new inside, but a tad rough outside. I cleaned up and conditioned the fretboard real good ,polished the frets , put new oxbone nut and bridge in and a new set of Ernie Ball super slnky 8s on it. It had 9s on it and the neck was just slightly pulled up ,making the action a little high, but putting the 8s on and giving it a lil time has brought it to just about perfect and there are no buzzes to be found :0)

    It's not perfect and has a few places on it ,but it sounds great and the neck plays almost like my Strats .

    It has a deep charcoal colored quilted pattern ghosted into the front and back. Nearly unnoticeable till you are right up on it . IMG_20180613_094043.jpg IMG_20180613_094241.jpg

    Very nice! I liked these when they are new, now I think they are getting passed over at times so we get to score a deal. Very cool!

    The crazy part is ,this is a thin line guitar and a Strat fits in the case very nicely too .

    Nice find.

    I did a setup on one of these not too long ago for a friend of ours.
