Body: Mahogany

Neck: Mahogany neck with a thick “D” profile, 1 11/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Banjo-style tuners, one pickup (rated at 30.1 kOhms), three-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: This vintage beauty has great character, with plenty of dings, scratches, gouges and checking lines to be found along its top side. The bridge has aged to a beautiful patina. The back and sides shows a a consistent and strong buckle rash, as well as many various dings, gouges and scratches. There is also a strong amount of edge wear to be seen, which includes several finish chips that expose the underlying mahogany. The neck and headstock remain glossy, but do have several chips, scratches and dings along their surfaces. The headstock shows a good amount of edge wear along most of its edges. Also worth noting, the G-string tuning key is not fully intact as approximately one quarter of it has broken off. This EB-0 has more than a few stories to tell!

Playability: The strings are set up nicely with medium action, play great, and ring out clearly across the board. The tuning pegs are slightly loose.

Modifications/Repairs: Bone nut installed. Non-original caps.
