Serial Number: 71449033
Tech Notes: The truss rod is maxed out and the guitar is currently set up with 10-46 strings with optimal neck relief on the bass side, however there is a slight twist in the neck resulting in slightly more relief on the treble side. The bridge is warped in the center as is common with old tune-o-matics, causing the middle strings to sit slightly lower than the outer. Due to to these factors the guitar is set with a medium/low action. The frets are low and show signs of wear with divots throughout.
