The core of a b3 SL Deluxe's design is simple in theory - take the best aspects of a Stratocaster and a Les Paul and combine them. While other builders like Paul Reed Smith have worked from similar concepts - Fender meets Gibson - b3 guitars have a decidedly more vintage feel and tone vs a PRS (makes sense given that Gene was a Master Builder at the Fender Custom Shop and also spent time at Gibson's Custom Shop - he has intimate knowledge of what makes great instruments from those brands tick).

This lightly relic'd Dark Burst SL Deluxe features a 4/5A flame maple top, hollow mahogany body (sans F hole), mahogany neck w/a rosewood board, 59 carve (.89"-.98"), 12" radius, trapezoid inlays, Throbak SLE-101+ humbuckers, TonePros bridge/tailpiece, 24.625" scale, and a 1 11/16" nut. 

Gibson players will no doubt recognize these specs as the basic "recipe" for a Les Paul style guitar. For all intents and purposes, this is a Les Paul (save for its hollowbody construction) - but - its quite a bit more comfortable with better balance, a tummy cut, and effortless upper fret access. 

Throbak SLE-101+ humbuckers are well established at the shop here (via Collings guitars). They deliver a clear and complex midrange, medium output, and a clear, articulate top end that excels at both clean and overdriven tones. You can easily pull gorgeous, almost ES-335-like clean tones out of this guitar in addition to killer overdriven tones (there's also a coil tap via the push/pull tone knob).

Condition: Like new. 

A fine example of modern and vintage aesthetic brought together by a legendary Master Builder - at a discount vs new. What else could you want? Priced with hardshell case.
