Electronics: Original Gibson "Tar-back" pickups with 3-point adjustment, and original electronics with 3-way toggle selector switch and master volume/tone controls. One of the pickup leads on the neck pickup has been re-soldered, and a few solder joints in the wiring harness have been touched up. The pot codes date to 1978.
Pickup Measurements: 5.9k (neck), 6.0k (bridge)
Hardware: The G tuner is not original.
Weight: 7lbs 5oz
Modifications/Repairs: The G tuner has been replaced. The neck pickup leads have been re-soldered, and a few solder joints in the harness have been touched up.
Case Details: Hard shell case is included.
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows light play wear, consistent with its age; the finish is glossy with light scratches, small dings, and other small blemishes. The back of the body has moderate buckle rash and additional scratches. The back and sides of the neck have moderate finish wear, through to the metallic undercoat. There is an open hole in the face of the headstock above the G tuner, where the new mounting screw hole was drilled too deeply.
Serial Number: 81640603
Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and light neck relief; the neck has a small hump where it begins to transition to the heel, but the guitar has been set up to accommodate this. The truss rod is at its maximum position; the guitar sets up well with 10s, but heavier strings would not necessarily be recommended. The frets are wide and fairly low with minor wear. The pot codes date to 1978, and the serial number dates to 1980.
