Description & Specs

The following specs were carefully collected and recorded by a skilled technician. For a more detailed description and questions regarding sound, feel, or cosmetic condition, please visit our Lincoln Avenue showroom or call to speak to one of our Used and Vintage experts.
Finish Details: Original
Body Material: Maple Body
Neck Material: Mahogany Neck
Fingerboard Material: Brazilian Rosewood
Neck Profile: "C" profile
Neck Thickness (IN): .81" (1st fret), .98" (12th fret)
Fingerboard Radius: 10.00"
Nut Width: 1-5/8"
Scale Length: 24 3/4"
Neck Details: Set-in mahogany neck with bound Brazilian rosewood fretboard, 1 5/8" nut width, and split parallelogram inlays. The finish on the back of the neck has worn away between the first and twelfth frets.
Electronics: The bridge pickup is an era-correct patent number decal Gibson pickup, which has been spliced in to the harness. The patent number decal neck pickup, stereo electronics, and Varitone are original. The controls include volume/tone controls for each pickup, 3-way toggle selector switch, and Varitone; the guitar is wired for a stereo output, with the bridge pickup carried on the tip connector and the neck pickup on the ring connector. A stereo Y-cable is needed to access both pickups. The pot codes are hidden by the shields, but are original to the guitar.
Pickup Measurements: 8.5k (neck), 7.3k (bridge)
Hardware: Original. Much of the gold has worn away from the metal hardware, such as the Varitone ring and pickup covers.
Weight: 8lbs 15oz
Modifications/Repairs: The bridge pickup is not original, but is era-correct for the instrument. The lead has been spliced into the wiring harness so as not to disturb the original solder joints.
Case Details: Original hardshell case
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows plenty of nice aging, with heavy finish checking on the body and neck and a heavy patina on the metal hardware. There is a small patch of wear on the front of the treble horn and near the treble side of the bridge, and there is some buckle rash on the back. The finish on the back of the neck has fully worn away between the 1st and 12th frets, and is chipping in some areas as well. The inlays have shrunk slightly over time but are secure, and the headstock face has some light wear/checking.
Serial Number: 303952
Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and optimal neck relief; the guitar is currently set up with 10s. The frets are wide and moderately low with light wear. The serial number, electronics, and appointments date the guitar to 1965.
