Body: Spruce top with mahogany back and sides

Neck: Mahogany neck with a 50’s rounded “C” profile, 1 11/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware:Kluson Deluxe tuners, no electronics

Cosmetic Condition: This Gibson is loaded with character! The bodty overall is covered in checking lines. The top is covered in decades of play wear, with plenty of dings, scratches and scuffs to be studied. There is also a repaired crack between the sound hole and neck worth noting. The back and sides are just as smattered with wear, with the addition of a sizable patch of buckle rash. The neck has plenty of texture, most notably in firs position, though overall this thing feels like home. The headstock has its fair share of edge wear and light scratches, while the Kluson tuners have developed some nice pitting over time. This Gibson is bursting with character!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: The neck has been reset. There is a repaired crack along the top of the sound hole. Every back brace has been reglued. The bottom brace of the back had to have a shim made for it as a piece of it was missing. A bone nut and saddle were added.
