Coming to us from Japan, and bringing loads of tone with it, this AES1500 semi-hollow is finished out in a stunning orange finish that has our jaws on the floor. 

Crafted with maple back and sides and a sycamore top, this double bound beauty also sports a "C" profile maple neck (.793"-.947") with a nut measuring 1.68". The 12" radius fingerboard feels comfy and playable under the fingers. The cream binding down the neck gives it a smooth feel and top-shelf looks. 

It's loaded up with a pair of stock DiMarzio Q100 pickups that deliver tons of rock and jazz tone (N: 12.37k, B: 12.61k). Dedicated volume and tone controls for each pickup, along with a 3-way pickup selector, round out the straight-forward electronics on this jazz box. Plus, each tone control is a push pot that lets you coil split each pickup for some single coil tones that pop outta the mix. 

This case queen is used but dang, you'd never know it! You'd be hard pressed to find any playwear on this thang. There is one exception in that a Bigsby had ones been put on and then removed. So on the rear by the back strap butt on the screw holes left from the Bigsby. Other than that, it's a beaut, Clark! 

The pro techs here at EMS have given it a full setup so that it arrives to you ready for stage or studio! 

It ships out lighting fast in the included original hardshell case.
