This looks nice and the price isn't totally out there. Don't think it's a Kline (or a Knapp), any ideas?

I could be wrong, but it looks a lot like a Guitar Art Custom Art series. The art work was part of the Fantasy Series and was called Wizard. The Guitar Art series had several different artists.
There is a picture of that art work here. Look at the last picture.

My signature pic Baretta is also a Guitar Art Series.

It looks like a DiMarzio PU in the bridge. It should have a black Duncan JB.

Hadn't spotted that on VK, it is pretty hard to see.

I'm sure there was a post on the old forum regarding other artists. Obviously that's long gone but maybe the knowledge is still out there.

Is that a late 1985 serial#? (E-0173)

Roughly when do the 1986 E serials start?

Thanks

Circle C -Carol I think. That was later on in Kline’s work. She helped to fill the orders basically just copying his work.
