Scale Length: 24 3/4"
Neck Details: Original nut, looks to have been refretted with correct sized fret wire. Tuner postholes have been enlarged to accept modern hex-bushing tuners. Original tuners have been reinstalled with conversion bushings.
Electronics: Original P-90 pickup. Cover is stamped "UC-455", and there is also a "2" stamped. Pots have been replaced.
Pickup Measurements: 7.93K
Hardware: Hardware appears original, wit exception of the tuner bushings, strap buttons and a few screws. Kluson double ring, double line, tuning machines, with aged conversion bushings, non-wire ABR bridge with foundry marking, era correct tailpiece, knobs, and plastics. The pickguard has had some extra material epoxied to the mounting area as a spacer. There is also some velcro with foam in the area over the pickup cover. Extra thumbwheels have been added to the base of the bridge posts for stability.
Weight: 5lbs 8oz
Modifications/Repairs: Refret, added material and foam to pickguard, replaced pots, tuner postholes have been enlarged, extra thumbwheels have been added to the bridge posts, strap buttons a few screws are not original.
Case Details: Hardshell case.
Cosmetic Condition: Guitar is in good condition with moderate wear. There is finish checking throughout, as well as light scratches, dents, dings, and finish chips. There are rings in the finish over the headstock veneer from previous tuner installation. The finish has chipped away along the neck pocket seams.
Tech Notes: Guitar plays well with low action and optimal neck relief. Frets are wide and tall, showing light wear in the first position. With no serial number or factory order number, it is not possible to indubitably date this piece, but the lack of a serial number places it in pre-1961 production, and due to the neck profile, we are calling it a 1960.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
