Up for sale, a Rozeo Ladybug Mahogany hollowbody archtop electric guitar in near mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case. Expertly crafted in Japan and designed by master builder, Kyodai Higuchi, the Ladybug is a missing link in archtop evolution, featuring an L-1 shaped body with complements inspired by the classic ES-125 platform. The hollow mahogany body provides a robust midrange that projects a harmonically rich response when plucked or strummed, while offering plenty of detailed upper midrange definition. A P90 pickup is located at the neck position, channeling exceptional low end content and a dynamic tonal range that is highly dependent on where you play and the position of the Tone control. The guitar can go from full, engulfing bass to bold, punchy cut and snap, perfect for soothing Jazz chords and plucky leads. Lightweight at 4lbs 12oz, this Ladybird has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, accurate intonation, and comfortable action.
The one-piece mahogany neck has a medium C shaped profile with prominent shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .845” deep at the 1st fret and .909” at the 9th. The thick slab rosewood fretboard features abalone dot inlay and pristine stock medium jumbo fretwire. The guitar plays effortlessly up the straight neck with an ideally adjusted and responsive truss rod. The fingerboard has a player-friendly modern 9.5” radius, the scale is 25”, and the nut measures 1 11/16“ in width. The headstock features classy tortoise shell binding with abalone Rozeo inlay. The stock gold butterbean Kluson-style Gotoh 510 tuners turn smoothly and hold their pitch well.
On the body, the electronics work as they should with a Master Volume and Master Tone control for the single P90 pickup at the neck. The gold hardware is lustrous, and the thick tortoise shell pickguard is clean as a can be. The mahogany body is framed by tortoise shell binding on the top and back, complete with matching tortoise shell heel cap. The transparent gloss finish is pristine on both the body and neck, showcasing dynamic figuring in the mahogany.
The original hardshell case is included.
