The moment you pick up a Frank Brothers guitar, you know you're in for something special as the quality is that obvious. All the hallmarks of a high-end instrument are present: flawless finish work, clean, crips lines throughout, excellent fretwork, etc.
This preowned (and we say that lightly- this guitar is exceptionally clean) Arcade model from 2018 is on consignment and exhibits all the great features of a Frank Brothers build in a streamlined, no-frills solidbody electric.
Fans of large necks will appreciate this one. In what we could only compare to a hefty Nocaster carve, this Arcade's neck redefines the term "baseball bat". Not to fear, though. While large, it does play very well and contributes to a rather acoustic-like resonance in sync with the body. The Lollar P90s are a great match- great vintage warmth but with the right about of snap, definition, and clarity that get you into LP Special territory. The uniquely carved slimmer body style offers an enhanced level of playability and comfort while also helping mitigate some of the heavyweight woes certain solidbody mahogany guitars exhibit.
Condition: Excellent+. Virtually no wear on the top save for some light finish swirls, very clean back and sides, almost no fret wear. The setup feels great and the electronics work as they should.
If you're in the market for something unique, or maybe even looking to buy one really great guitar vs owing a few good instruments, check out this Frank Brothers Arcade.
Price includes original hardshell case.
