Summary

Body: Hollow maple

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

Neck Thickness: .83" at the 1st fret, .92" at the 12th fret

Pickups/Hardware: Original tuners, one P-90 (rated at 7.2 kOhms), volume and tone controls ('52 and '54 pot dates)

Cosmetic Condition: The body is in great shape for its age, with one of the tightest checking patterns we've ever seen! The top has a few spots of edge wear, as well as a noticeable finish chip along the lower bout. The back shows a fair amount of scuffs and scratches, but overall is aging gracefully. The neck is clean for its age, though there are a few light dings and a more noticeable group of finish chips behind the 8th and 9th frets. The headstock has its fair share of earned edge wear, as well as a good bit of light scratches and dings. This Gibson is good to go!

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

Modifications/Repairs: The tuners have been replaced. The neck has been reset. The pickguard is missing. The solder has been touched up.

Weight: 5lbs 3oz

Case: Original hardshell
