Body: Mahogany

Neck: Maple neck with a very soft “V” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Two pickups, three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: The top has plenty of character, in the form of dings, light scratches and finish swirling. The back and sides show plenty of buckle rash, dings and dents, but overall have held up quite well through the decades. The neck has a few finish chips, and a handful of dings, but feels mostly smooth. This Gibson is ready to rumble!

Playability: The strings are set up nicely, with medium action, and ring out clearly across the board, though the neck has a slight twist.

Modifications/Repairs: The back of the neck has been refinished. The truss rod cavity has been widened for better access to the nut. It is possible that there may have been a repaired neck break at some point, but because of the refinish, we are unable to verify with certainty.
