Condition: This is a brand new BLEM USA M-II Hardtail in See Thru Black Sunburst. The reason this is a BLEM is because of a finish imperfection on the heel of the guitar (see photos). It comes equipped with our Pro-Tech setup and Jackson’s warranty. Drop Dee Guitars is an authorized dealer of Jackson Guitars.
Pro-Tech Setup: Our Pro-Tech setup makes your guitar ready to rock straight out of the box. Here’s how..
