Duo Jets with Dearmond pickups like these produce a unique tone that is a great addition to any collection. You'll add something to your sonic palette that you just don't have otherwise. The control setup on these guitars is also kind of unique. It's pretty handy to have a master volume when there is also a volume knob for each pickup!
This GH is all original and shows light signs of playwear and handling. It plays great and has no issues whatsoever. The case is perhaps the coolest one in the business - it's thick and substantial and damn cool looking, inside and out. Original paperwork is enclosed therein.
