Body: Original blue sparkle

Neck: Medium “C” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 9.5” radius, and pearloid inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Original tuners, four single coil pickups (rated at 11.5 kOhms in neck #1, 5.5 k in neck #2, 5.9 k in bridge #2, bridge #1 doesn’t work), four pickup on-off switches, one tone and four volume controls

Cosmetic Condition: The top, back, and sides are all looking nice with only some light dings throughout and a handful of light scratches on the back. The neck is smooth for the age and the headstock is looking good with some edge wear. This Norma really shines!

Playability: Has higher action to prevent buzzing. Would benefit from a refret.

Modifications/Repairs: The tone pot has been replaced and one bridge pickup needs to be rewound.
