I purchased my electric in spring of 2003 from Mr. Ted Kim (Mr. Potato). It was hand made in South Korea. I love this guitar. It has a wood finish. It is a flawless piece of handcrafted art. The body is solid wood, and makes it quite heavy, but also gives it it's wonderful character, endless sustain, and tone quality. It has titanium plated hardware, with locking nuts. Also two knobs, one for volume and the other for tone. It also comes with guitar tuner, soft case, cord, guitar stand, and a few picks and tools.
