Used Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion III Archtop Guitar Black 1993 w/HSC

This is a pretty unique Gibson signature model. The Howard Roberts originally started off as an acoustic style electric that after revisions evolved into this Fusion III variant. This particular example is from 1993. It's a excellent archtop that is very play-able and lends it self well for jazz chops or rock players looking for some snarl and semi-hollow resonance. 

Condition: This guitar is in what we'd consider "good" condition. The truss rod has plenty of life left in it. There are dings and deep scratches on the body and headstock of the instrument. The hardware has some of the gold starting to wear off. By the bottom strap button some of the paint by the seam line of the sides has begun to flake off. There is no crack in the wood though.
