"I spent two years conceptualizing, designing, and prototyping my Broadway guitar models. Given my lifelong thesis that "The Wood Is My Foundation"... I designed two related models that embody my 44 years experience with guitarmaking and the relationship of wood and tone." - Roger Sadowsky

Roger Sadowsky's Broadway is a sleek, elevated solid body electric available in an array of tonewoods for the body, neck and fretboard. The SS-13 is the short scale model that features an H-H pickup configuration. This one features a beautiful set of redwood burl on spruce and a roasted maple neck, with controls in the Layout 2 format, with "the pickup selector switch in the most accessible position with the controls laid out behind the switch."

Aside from signs of light handling, this pre-owned SS-13 is in excellent condition. There is something that looks like a finish crack near the neck pickup, but it's stable and doesn't seem likely to expand or cause issue.
