What makes this guitar special: Ultra cool vintage vibe with a gorgeous flame maple body. The H-78 has gained a tremendous amount of popularity lately due to it being one of Dan Auerbach's main go-to guitars. If you like the sound of the Black Keys this may very well be the guitar for you. DeArmond has been making legendary pickups since the 1930's & this trio of gold foil single coils delivers unbelievably dynamic tones - a sure fire hit for any guitar aficionado. Professionally set up by us with fresh strings & low action, this beauty plays & sounds fantastic!
