Body: Rosewood laminate; fully hollow

Neck: Maple neck with a "C" profile, 1 11/16" wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12" radius, and block inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Original hardware (except guard and guard hardware), two mini-humbuckers (rated at 13.9 kOhms in the neck and 6.1 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: There is some awesome checking throughout the body and the top, back, and sides only have minimal wear otherwise. There are some small dings and scratches throughout and a decent amount of play wear on the pickups. The binding has aged, colored, and is cracking. The neck is mostly smooth with some checking throughout and the headstock has some finish chipping and edge wear. This Gibson Crest Gold is one rare bird!

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

Modifications/Repairs: The guitar has had a recent neck reset. The pickguard and all pickguard hardware is not original. The neck pickup has been replaced. Both pickup leads have been cut and spliced. Multiple solder joints have been touched up on the wiring harness. A ground wire has been added. There is a small finish touchup on the back of the neck heel.
