Body: Semi-hollow laminate maple

Neck: Mahogany neck with a medium late ’60s slim nut “C” profile, 1 9/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and small block inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Gibson Deluxe tuners, two humbuckers (rated at 7.6kOhms in the neck and 7.8k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls (Electronics all original with Patent Number Sticker pickups)

Cosmetic Condition: The top looks great for its age with mostly very light scratches in the lacquer and some normal pick wear on the guard. The back and sides have a handful of light dings and dents but no serious buckle rash or structural damage. The neck has a ding behind the 11th fret but otherwise it is nice and glossy with only minor dents. The headstock has some very fine checking lines where it meets the neck and just normal wear and tear otherwise with no repairs or cracks. This ’68 is extremely clean for its age!

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

Modifications/Repairs: Replaced tuners. The tuner holes have been widened slightly to accept the new tuners.
