So, I've been wanting a semi-hollow body for ages for some lighter rock. Found an add for this yesterday, and for 250 with an hardcase, gibson USA pickup and grover tuners, it was a no-brainer for me. It appears to have been barely played. Also has the plastic on the plate at the bottom of the neck. Now, I'm not exactly a blink 182 fan. I like one of their songs (Stay together for the kids). But I do like the simplicity of the guitar. Just arrived with it home, so no review yet. BTW: having a backplate is a plus! Will make any mod much easier. Thinking of adding at least a coil split push-pull on the volume pot.
