Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and optimal neck relief. The truss rod is mostly loose so this guitar will set up best with medium or heavier gauge strings. Currently set up with 10-52 gauge strings. The new frets are tall, wide, and show minor signs of play wear. The serial number dates this guitar to 1967.
