DEMO MODEL: This instrument has been opened and typically used by an artist or group at a clinic or performance event (i.e. a State Educator show, or Industry Trade show booth. ) The instruments have not been previously owned, and with very few exceptions, are in original packaging. All DEMO models instruments still carry the full manufacturers warranty - but at a lower cost to compensate for the limited usage. All specifications and details are identical to the brand new versions.
