Long story short. I ordered this J Custom only to receive the wrong guitar. It is 100% new off the shelf. I have only plugged it in to make sure the electronics work. Other than than, you have a brand new J.Custom. I personally do not like the finish on the guitar and since it was not what I ordered I do not care to keep possession of it. Asking $2500 USD, which is much less than I paid. Local pickup always welcome.
