2017.12.24: When I bought the LA-85kk, it came with a Custom-kk case, so I was looking for the right time to buy a Custom without the case.
I was not able to win the bid because it was over my budget, but I was able to negotiate a good price on a flea market app because it was not in good condition and they were willing to sell it to me at a fair price.
I think I can use it if I do some maintenance.
2018.1.9: For some reason it had a stereo jack, so I switched it to switch craft mono, and the front PU was almost disconnected, but I fixed that by soldering it back on.
2019.7: I tried to change the strings after a long time and found that the insert blocks were no longer easily removed.
I replaced all the strings with titanium ones for durability and changed the neck to 42 because it was getting a little twisted after putting 09-46 strings on it.
2019.9.14: I decided to use it for live performances, so I had it fretted and rubbed with plek.
The frets have been lowered since I bought it and are now at the limit of the rubbing height, but I had the nut height adjusted again, so it is much easier to play and the stress has been reduced.
2022.9: I sold it because it seemed that I would never have a chance to use it again.
I think the halftone is too sparkly.
