2020s Starshine SSJ-200 Jumbo Guitar

At first glance, this looks like like a cruddy, '90s J-200 knockoff. In reality, it's a cruddy 2010s or 2020s J-200 knockoff. I lie, though! It's in actuality a pretty dang good guitar -- it has a wide, even, J-200-style voice, a quick (and slightly retro) neck profile, and countrified looks, for sure.

It's got a solid spruce top over (presumably) ply maple back and sides, a strange "charcoal" black-grey translucent finish, oddly-flat-looking pickguard, oddly-fancy actual abalone (probably abalam) purfling bordering all of the binding everywhere, pearloid position markers, and genuine Grover tuners.

The onboard pickup works fine but is not the most amazing in sound. It would be a good choice for loud/feedback-prone venues, however, as it's an undersaddle-style unit.

My guy Ancel did a level/dress of the frets and setup on it and it's playing spot-on and ready to serve.

Repairs included: a fret level/dress and setup.
