Made in Japan, Excellent/Mint condition – just some scratches on pick guard. Built from 1990 to 2011, the AES-1500 features a thin, but full width hollow body with sycamore top, maple back and sides. For bracing, there are two full length braces and a solid center block supporting the bridge and tailpiece. The neck is maple with a rosewood fingerboard, and a long 25.5 inch scale length and 13.75 inch radius. Pickups are DiMarzio Q-100 models. Comes with original plush lined hard shell case.
