1861 AX-5 Balladeer Shallow Bowl, black with OP-Pro Preamp. This is a great guitar for plugged in gigging, feels almost like paying an electric solid body. This guitar has never left my smoke free house and has only been played a few times. Very nice condition, minimal fret wear, No cracks or dings. The only notable wear is a bit of finger bracing smudging below the sound hole. This guitar is listed as a factory second but I could never figure out why, looks and plays excellent. Comes with hard shell case. Very nice guitar for $350.

....sorry for having a senior moment, it's all coming back to me now. When I bought this guitar the plugged in signal would clip in and out and was distorted. I replaced the the saddle pickup assembly and it has been fine ever since. This is likely why it was a factory second. PM if you have any questions.
