The RKS Wave guitar was a guitar that failed to catch on due to typical musician indifference to innovation. The company won industrial design awards for the ergonomics and functionality. The RKS guitars central part of the guitar contains a neck through core and were designed with a removable body (Shell) section, with the intention to have owners swap different shaped bodies. These body sections were designed to be light weight and contour comfortably more-so than more traditional guitar designs. Due to the short lived lifespan of these guitars, replacement shells are hard to find. However, due to the simplicity of the attachment method this would make a perfect guitar for someone looking to make their own shells. 

This particular guitar has a few scratches and chips to the shell paintwork, the core of the guitar is in great shape, overall it is in a good condition. This guitar has had a body split through the middle of the shell, which has been professionally repaired by a luthier. The frets are in great shape, plenty of life left. The action at the 12th fret is 1.75mm and plays great. The guitar comes in its original gig bag.
