Serial Number: 301873

Tech Notes: Currently, set up with 13-gauge flatwound strings and low action. The truss rod functions and is set for optimal relief, though the neck does sight with a slight hump near the heel. This is not affecting playability. There is no longer downward adjustablitly in the bridge. This can be remedied with a neck reset, which we have elected not to perform because the guitar sets up and play well with low action set to 2/32" across the board. -- Ther serial number dates this Broadway from 1965. The presence of an embossed "2" on the back of the headstock just above the serial number signifies this Epiphone as a "Factory Second" instrument.
