Pickups/Hardware: Open-back tuners, one lipstick pickup, three-way tone switch, volume and tone controls (pots date to 1961)

Cosmetic Condition: This VI is gorgeous! The top has some great variation in finish wear, as well as a handful of small dings and scratches. The back and sides are similarly worn, with regular play wear, and a few small dings hear and there. The neck is mostly clean, though evenly textured from finish wear, while the headstock has a few finis chips and wear around the edges. This is one killer copper Shorthorn!
