The basic construction is good ol' Dano all the way, beautiful in its simplicity, with a hardboard/plywood construction with a solid center core and tape "binding" to cover the seam; metal base bridge with notches that hold the ball-end strings, topped off with a rosewood saddle; 5-screw neck attachment; easy access control plate on back; and pickup height adjustment on back.Other features include white knobs on dual concentric tone and volume controls, 3-way selector, a matching "seal" pickguard, double acting truss rod, flat 14" radius, 25" scale, 21 frets, C-shaped neck.I got an email from Rondo regarding this guitar where they confirmed it was a limited model with a price of 9. Includes free gigbag or substitute used a hardshell case available for .This one's in dead mint condition and for 9, I'll throw in a gigbag. Charvel Charvette 150, 1990, features a nice sounding set of pickups with a Charvel Ceramic Plus in the bridge and a Carvel high-gain single coil size stacked humbucker in the neck.Excellent value and quality that's typical of Korea today.

Carvin remains one of the best buys on the USA guitars - especially on the used market.This 2011 model was only made in one small run so there aren't many of these around - most of the Harm 3 models feature the cats eye f-hole in a semi-hollow design while this model was a limited edition production model that's no longer available. They're quality is top-notch but as Carvin sells directly to the public there is no retail store to take a bite of the profit.I last had this guitar a few years ago and it appears as though it was unplayed since it was last in my hands.

Another great 1st Reissue, this one finished in the classic copper finish.

Has one mod that bears mentioning - someone removed the locking nut and replaced with a plastic cover.

Not necessarily a bad thing unless you like to do dive bombs.

The piezo system isn't really an acoustic tone, but it does add a lot of body to the sound, especially in the middle position, when combined with the magnetic pickups.

To me it sounds just like a vintage hollowbody, like an old ES-125T.

Out of the box these are not great playing guitars, with high action, noisy pots, and rough feeling frets.
