Tech Notes: This guitar was purchased by CME from its original owner so we have maintained its originality as much as possible. The original trem arm was missing. We did replace the bridge pickup because the original was not functional. The guitar plays well with low action. The original frets are small with and have wear. There is some light string buzz due to fret wear, particularly on the B string in the 7th to 9th fret range. The guitar could be refretted if playability over originality is desired, but we decided to keep it in original condition. -The serial number dates to 1958. The pots date to 1957. The neck pencil mark and body pencil mark both date to 1958.
