The body and neck show heavy finish checking throughout, as well as a few spots on the binding where the finish has chipped away. There is a small filled hole on the side of the treble bout over which the finish has been touched up, as well as a hole in the pickguard/top which has been filled with an inlay dot.

Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and minor neck relief; the guitar is currently set up with 12-52 acoustic strings. The treble side of the neck has a small swoop upward at the tongue, but the guitar has been set up to accommodate this. The truss rod has good adjustability; the frets are wide and low with some wear. The serial number dates the guitar to 1964.
