Case Details: Original hardshell case
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar has aged nicely, with plenty of character. The body and neck were previously refinished, and have developed mild finish checking and areas of play wear. The front of the body has several small dings below the bridge, and there are heavy scratches on the jack plate. The sides of the body have numerous small dings and finish chips, and the back has moderate buckle rash and additional checking. The back of the neck is smooth with some nice wear along the edges of the fretboard, and the headstock face has additional light checking.
Serial Number: 30028
Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and optimal neck relief; the guitar is currently set up with 10s. The frets are wide and tall with light wear. The body has no visible date markings due to the previous refinish, however the factory nail holes date to pre-1965. The neck heel pencil marking dates to 1958, and the neck plate serial number dates to 1959.
