Cosmetic Condition: The guitar has aged nicely; the finish is glossy with patches of wear along the edges, light scratches, and numerous small dings. The back of the body has fairly heavy buckle rash and additional patches of wear, and the sides of the body have numerous dings. The back of the neck has aged nicely, and the headstock has light finish checking. The pickguard is cracked at the bass side of the neck pickup, and the trem cavity cover is cracked in one corner.
Serial Number: 121848
Tech Notes: Plays well with low action; the guitar is currently set up with 10s. The neck has a slight amount of backbow on the bass side even with the truss rod loosened fully, so lighter strings are not recommended. The guitar has been set up to accommodate this and plays cleanly. The frets are narrow and medium height with minor wear. The pot codes date to 1965; the serial number and heel stamp date to 1966.
