    I've always been a fan of Tradition guitars and have owned probably 20 of them. This model is my favorite. Kind of a PRS wannabe semi hollow with nice clear sounding pickups. Made in Korea, my guess is at the same factory that makes the PRS imports. Top notch quality. Needs new strings which I'll get tomorrow but just having got it home it sounds great. Only paid $100.

    $100 bucks for a Korean made set neck with binding on the body sounds like a heck of a deal..

    It sounds good with the old strings on it, going to put on new strings right after lunch. Pickups are not muddy at all.

    Got it all cleaned up and restrung with 10-46 strings earlier today. Tore it completely down and gave it a serious cleaning. Very happy with this one.

    Guy had it listed on FB for $150 but he was about 30 minutes out of the city. People around here are incredibly lazy when it comes to traveling even the shortest distances for gear. I messaged saying if he'd take $100 I could come right away. I was perfectly happy to pay the $150 but I figured why not ask..... he accepted. Other than the usual gold hardware pitting the thing is dead mint, can't find a ding or dent anywhere.
