Modifications/Repairs: -The original double pick guard has been removed. (Unless this was a special order without the guards.) At some point it has Gibson Folksinger style guards that may have been the way it was original special ordered and those have been removed as well. -The original adjustable bridge has been removed and replaced with a different style bone saddle bridge. -The top has been probably over-sprayed. -The tuners have been replaced with Grovers. -There is a barrel jack installed in the end block, but it is not connected to anything. -There is a small repaired crack on the top, bass side lower bout.

Tech Notes: -The guitar plays well with low action. The frets are wide with medium height and light play wear. -There are no traces of the large Everly Brothers style pickguards on this top, and the whole guitar black lights consistent and old. Which means that this was either a special order, or the pickguards were removed and the top over-sprayed a very long time ago. -The serial number dates to 1963. The second to last digit of the serial number has been obscured both on the back of the headstock and the sticker inside the sound hole.
