Pacer 16.5” archtop :: refit bridge foot, dye fingerboard black and set up for chrome flats. This guitar is a Chinese import that sells new for $160.  Insanely cheap.  But you get what you pay for as the fingerboard extension humps over the body (should be planed down / refretted).  The bridge foot looked like it went straight from the band saw to final setup - no attempt at a tight fit.  There are other build-quality issues and hardware / electronics are not of the best quality.  This is all to be expected though at this price.  All issues aside, the guitar sounds and plays pretty damn good.  Roll off the treble, bust out your fake book and run through some charts.  Bleep bloop!
