Want your cake and some gingerbread, too? The "plus" in WL-250+ mean a gorgeous Tree of Life inlay winding end to end down the un-scooped ebony fretboard of this deluxe version of the Gold Tone WL-250. Unlike many such decorative patterns that can get confusing to play on, ours features strategically placed flower inlays at the usual marked frets as a navigational aid. The WL-250+ features an accurate replica of the classic three-piece Whyte Laydie tone ring, mated with a half-inch maple rim for maximum air chamber volume. The maple neck has a vintage heel design, a Fairbanks-style headstock shape and GT Master planetary-geared tuners. The eleven-inch pot carries a Remo Renaissance head, a No-Knot tailpiece and dual coordinator rods for a solid neck fit and easy adjustments. A complete pro setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida completes this work of art. Available as left-handed model.
