Cosmetic Condition: The guitar has light play wear for its age. The finish is glossy with light dents and scratches throughout. The back of the body has moderate buckle rash.

The metal hardware is nicely tarnished with age.

Serial Number: 00134886

Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with medium/low action. The truss rod has limited adjustability so the guitar plays best with light gauge strings (10s or smaller). The frets are wide with medium height and light play wear. The neck has a slight twist that causes some light string buzz on the low E and A strings on the frets past the body joint, but the guitar otherwise plays very well. These issues could all be reverse by planning the neck and refretting the guitar, but because it has original frets in great shape and plays well, this has not been done. -The serial number and pots date to 1976.
