Body: Mahogany

Neck: Mahogany neck with a "C" profile, 1 11/16" wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12" radius, and dot inlays

Neck Thickness: .89" at the 1st fret, .97" at the 12th fret

Pickups/Hardware: Kluson Deluxe tuners, original pickups (rated at 7.9 kOhms in the neck and bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: This guitar couldn't look better if it was relic'd by the masters themselves! There is some very light, fine checking on top that accompanies some cracking around the poker chip, pitting on the bridge, and some light dings throughout. The sides have some chips, dings, and edge wear and there is some buckle rash and dings throughout the back. The neck is smooth with a light ding or two and patches of play wear and the headstock has some dings and chips around the edges. This '57 LP Special has a lot of stories to tell and is far from done making music!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: The neck pickup cover, three-way switch, and tuners have been replaced (original tuners in case). There is a repair around the switch, some touch-up on the headstock, and the pickups have cracked bobbins (very common).
