AIRCRAFT/AC-6 Green (Unit 2 type)
2020.12.15: I happened to buy a BD of the tour footage of the introduction of this guitar and was about to watch it when I found it on the market and bought it.
I think it was still cheap for an AC-6 in recent years, but when I saw it in person, it was so hard to clean that I wondered if the fingerboard was a tight-fitting ebony because of the ridiculous level of grime on it.
There were no bad dings or dents except for a scratch on the pickguard and some fret wear, so I guess it was just bad storage.
There are no modifications or parts replaced, and I have the warranty card and hard case from the time.
The hard case is a special hollowed out type, but unlike the other pieces I have, it doesn't have a logo on it, so it doesn't seem to have been an early one.
Two of the insert blocks were broken, so I replaced them.
I don't know if it's because of the different number of frets or because it's an early one, but the body shape seems a bit more awkward than the 24-fret one.
I changed the wiring pattern of the front PU because it wasn't hum canceling with the mix when tapped.
2022.2.18: The partial fret loss was quite noticeable and the nut was a little high, so I had it rubbed together and the nut height adjusted at the workshop.
