Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows play wear consistent with its age, showing numerous fine finish scratches and small blemishes. The body has some finish checking around the output jack, as well as numerous dings around the edges of the body, particularly along the back edge of both bouts and near the control cavity. There is a fairly large ding on the bass side of the neck at the 14th fret, along with some shallower ones on the back of the neck at the 1st and 3rd frets. These are not impairing playability. The headstock face and edges show some wear as well.
Serial Number: 566354
Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and optimal neck relief; the guitar is currently set up with 10s, and the truss rod is functional. The frets are wide and low with some light wear. The pot codes date to 1968, and the serial number dates the guitar to 1969.
