Any thoughts on this guitar ?
Not sure why it has Nashville bridge and wrap around tailpiece.
I am considering purchasing.
Serial number says 2010.
$1400
Seller says Studio Lite factory relic.
Thanks!

That’s not a wrap around tailpiece, the previous owner top-wrapped the strings so the tailpiece could be lowered or “decked.” I would also be leery of any “factory relicing” on a USA model as that is usually only done on custom shop models. We might need more pictures.

^^ This. Potentially a very nice guitar (I'd likely have it if it's not been messed with) but more info/pictures please if you want useful advice.

IF it is a 2010, it is a Studio 50's Tribute model.

They were slightly thinner bodied and chambered.

No binding and no clear coat.

I think they are great guitars (I owned a honey burst), but $1400 is about 33% over priced (at least), IMHO.

Proof of ownership. Also top wrapped. And it had a nice dark chocolate fret board.

The tone was as good as any guitar I have owned. And that is high praise.

Mine weighed in at 7.7 lbs.

Chambering:

they didn't do any "factory relic" on that model. maybe the seller is referring to the satin finish??
