If I had money to burn, I'd hit it right away. This is some real high-end stuff right there, looks like the custom shop version. Even the edges of the floyd cavity are carefully rounded, just wow.

I remember seeing the first one of those on the cover of a Larry Carlton cd. They are beautiful.

Besides the imo butt-effin-ugly headstock VA were always very appealing to me. I still don´t like the HS but ...

I'm not sure this model of headstock being US made. To me this logo reminds me the Samick ownership era. :nono

I thought that round California logo was on the CS models? Anyway, killer axe this way or the other.

I want to know if this is an actually US guitar. I’m really liking it and want it. Why did you have to put this link up?

The round logo says "custom shop", not sure if it's US-made. Frankly I wouldn't care, looks like swamp ash and will probably be killer either way.

The older US models will usually go for $2-4k.

Here's another one with same HS and better pix, the seller says it's USA:

that seller always has nice stuff. Those headstocks are the ugliest headstocks I've ever seen.

Did a bit of research. It is a Samick made Korean guitar assembled in the US. It is nice and I like the Kahler and pickups. Sure it plays / sounds nice but would probably pay $500, not $900.
