Neck Details: Mahogany neck with bound Brazilian rosewood fretboard, trapezoid inlays, and headstock truss rod adjustment. There is a small decal on the headstock face, and the footprint of alternate tuner sets on the back of the headstock.
Electronics: None
Hardware: The tuners/tuner buttons have been replaced. The tailpiece is not original to the guitar, and the pickguard is missing.
Weight: 4lbs 6oz
Modifications/Repairs: Several top cracks have been reglued, and at least one has been reinforced with cleats. The tailpiece and tuners are not original to the instrument.
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar has plenty of nice wear present; the finish has scratches, dings, and a notable patch of wear on the front. The back of the body is glossy and clean, and the neck has several assorted dings along the back. The top of the guitar has a few repaired cracks as well.
Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with low action and optimal neck relief, and is currently set up with 12-53 phosphor bronze strings. The frets are narrow and fairly low with moderate wear, and divots low on the neck. The guitar lacks a discernable factory order number; based on the style of the silkscreen logo and the construction style, the guitar likely dates to the early 1950s.
