Body: Mahogany

Neck: Mahogany neck with a “C” profile, 1 9/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Kluson deluxe tuners, two single-coil pickups (rated at 7.1 kOhms in the neck and 7.1 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls (original ’64 pot codes)

Cosmetic Condition: This vintage beauty has some great checking lines! The top has its fair share of dings and finish chips, but overall is holding up nicely. The back and sides are similarly worn, with a nice and even smattering of dings, dents and finish chips to be found. The neck is surprisingly clean for its age, with just a few very light dings and a few scratches and chips behind the 1st fret. The headstock has a few finish chips along the edges, as well as a myriad of scratches along the face, and plenty of dings and rash patches along the back.

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: Missing tremolo bolt. A wraparound is currently being used.
