Body: Maple laminate

Neck: Mahogany neck with a large “C” profile, 1 11/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Original tuners, original pickup (rated at 7.4 kOhms), volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: The top has some serious character with finish swirling, dings and chips, and a bit of finish checking throughout. The sides have some scratching and edge wear and the back has some paint chipping and buckle rash. The neck plays well even with some finish wear / chipping and the headstock has some wear by each tuner and some edge wear and checking. This vintage beast is something to behold!

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

Modifications/Repairs: The neck appears to have been reset multiple times. There are some cracks in the body by the heel inside the cutaway. These cracks have been repaired and the neck is secure. There is also finish missing around the neck/body joint. A previous owner drilled a hole into the body attempting to drive a wood screw into the dovetail joint. This screw has since been removed and the hole has been filled. The knobs have been replaced.
