Wechter/Scheerhorn Rob Ickes model #6535R. Rosewood and Spruce body. Post and parabolic baffle open body construction. Scheerhorn cone. Dunlop 4 ball straplock end pin.
The RI model is a step up from the basic body materials, upgraded tuner machines, body binding, heel cap, pick guard, screenless sound holes, case etc.
Factory installed Schertler Basik on board electronics w/VTB controls in soundholes. Plugged in sound is very faithful to the acoustic tone. It's the whole plug and play package. No off board electronics needed. 1/4" out, no XLR.
Includes reptile print Wechter case.
I have a installed a new import cover plate. It's new but there are a couple small discolored spots.
$1000. Firm price. FedEx ground shipping cost is on the buyer. I will pack it myself and carry it to the depot. Whatever the actual shipping fee is to your address will be added to the price. Be advised that shipping costs have risen lately, so it is what it is.
I need the funds to cover some recent major expenses or it wouldn't be f/s.
As always, regional sales close enough to meet preferred and take priority.
No paypal...accept USPS postal money orders or verifiable cashiers check. Forum members only. PM with interest, questions etc. Ad subject to withdrawal, closure or reversal at any time, so move now if you're interested. If something else sells first, I might pull it.
Nice guitar in good shape with some light surface scratches from playing. Body and neck pretty much nick free. What you see in the photos are finger smudges from handling.
