It was made in 2012 of a limited number of 500. It has had a hand wound Ebony covered pickup fitted but also comes with the original pickup so can be put back to standard. Sounds lovely with both pickups to be fair. Also comes with an Ephiphone hard case. Am based in the beautiful island of Anglesey, North Wales. Would prefer pick up or meet somewhere but can also be arranged to be courier delivered at your own expense. You will be lucky to find another Silverburst Jack Casady for sale so act quick. Is all set up and ready to go currently fitted with flat wound strings with a nice low action. Sounds and plays beautifully. Will be sad to see it go but needs must so I guess it's a reluctant sale.
