Electronics: Original single coil pickups with black bobbins, with 3-way blade switch and master volume/tone controls. The wiring harness is original, although some solder joints appear to have been touched up. The mix of plastic and cloth insulated wire is not unusual for this era. The pot codes date to 1966.

Modifications/Repairs: -Neck has been refretted -Non-original nut -Some solder joints have been touched up

Cosmetic Condition: Guitar is in good condition with moderate wear. The finish has faded, there are scratches, dents, dings, finish chips, and areas of finish wear throughout. The pickguard has shrunk. The hardware shows a medium patina.
Serial Number: 212390
Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with medium-low action, and is currently set up with 10s. The neck is slightly backbowed even with the truss rod fully loose, and so lighter strings would not be recommended. The guitar has been set up to play cleanly and comfortably in this condition. The frets are narrow and tall with minor wear. The neck stamp and serial number date this guitar to 1968.
