AIRCRAFT/AC-6 Sonic Blue
2021.4.27: This one comes with a rare leather-patterned genuine case.
The neck is also unusual in that the body is bird's eye maple, but the fretboard is normal maple (usually the opposite is the case for visual appeal).
The AC6 in this color used by Mr. Haruhata had a lot of stickers on it, and this one had some stickers on it as well, as if it had been copied by previous owners.
The stickers themselves were removed cleanly, but there were still sunburn marks on the surface, and there was also a lot of smudges of tar.
Again, we cleaned as much as we could to overhaul it.
The 5th string saddle of the bridge seemed to have been assembled incorrectly at the time of shipping, with the saddle stop side for the 2nd and 5th strings and the string lock side for the 1st and 6th strings, resulting in an imbalance in string height.
I happened to have some saddle spacers, so I put 0.3mm and 0.1mm spacers under the 5th string saddle to keep the balance.
I don't want the unusual guitar to have unusual problems, even the case is fine, but I don't want it to have unusual problems.
Three of the insert blocks were cracked, so I replaced them.
I changed the wiring pattern of the front PU because it wasn't hum canceling when it was mixed at the tap.
2022.4.20: I had the nut height adjustment and fret rubbing done at the workshop.
The fingerboard radius is 305, but I had the radius of the R2 nut on the fingerboard measured, and it is 225R, which means that the 3rd and 4th strings in the low position are a little high.
Also, the neck moves easily, and although I just had it adjusted at the workshop, it immediately warps backwards in my home environment.
