Cosmetic Condition: The guitar has aged nicely; the finish has light checking, small scratches, and scattered small dings. The back of the body has moderate buckle rash, and the sides of the body have some additional dings. The pickguard has shrunk and warped somewhat with age. The back of the neck has some light dings, but is mostly smooth.
Serial Number: L99436
Tech Notes: Plays well with low action, and is currently set up with 10s. The neck is very straight even with the truss rod fully loosened, so lighter strings would not be recommended. The frets are narrow and moderately low with light wear. The electronics codes, heel stamp, and serial number all date to 1965.
