: I assume you realize that this is made by Rickenbaker from your use of the "Cresting wave" terminology.

It's actually a 425 Combo Ric. It is a student model which was sold in a package with an amp and case.

They spared expense by not buffing it out like a genuine Ric, but according to John Hall, CEO of Ric, if they would run short, they would grab a 425 and slap an Electro nameplate on it. Hope this helps.
