This 2021 Banker BigsV is in excellent cosmetic condition showing very little to no signs of play wear throughout. The finish has been aged and has some very light checking from the builder. The neck profile is a 59 carve, has a 1 11/16” nut width and feels absolutely dynamite in the hand. This neck is not overly large - it feels just right. The frets on this instrument show no signs of play wear and have a lifetime of use left in them. The Brazilian rosewood fingerboard is nice and dark and also shows no wear. This instrument plays outstanding up and down the fingerboard with low action and great intonation. This guitar has great resonance and you can feel the vibration against your body with even a light strum. The resonant nature of this guitar paired with the OX$ Hot Duane PAF humbucker set really lets this guitar absolutely sing through a clean or dirty amplifier. These pickups are clear, articulate and exceptionally touch sensitive - hands down some of the best PAF clones that I have heard. This instrument weighs in at 7lb 10oz and is very balanced on a strap. Banker builds extremely fine guitars that can be seen on stages across the world and in the hands of some of the best guitar pickers on the planet. This fine guitar is housed in its original black TKL Banker branded V shaped hard shell case. A gem of a guitar shipped out safely and promptly from our little shop here in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
