Case Details: Hardshell case.
Cosmetic Condition: Guitar is in good condition with moderate wear. There is finish checking throughout, as well as light scratches, dents, dings, and finish chips. There are rings in the finish over the headstock veneer from previous tuner installation. The finish has chipped away along the neck pocket seams.
Tech Notes: Guitar plays well with low action and optimal neck relief. Frets are wide and tall, showing light wear in the first position. With no serial number or factory order number, it is not possible to indubitably date this piece, but the lack of a serial number places it in pre-1961 production, and due to the neck profile, we are calling it a 1960.
