|Fully hollow body, with laminated maple back & sides and maple top
|.83" (1st fret), 1.01" (12th fret)
|Set mahogany neck with bound ebony fretboard and split inlays. A small section of binding has been repaired, on the treble side of the fretboard from the nut to the second fret.
|Original patent number sticker pickups and wiring. Three-way pickup selector switch, volume & tone controls for each pickup, and a mute switch on the upper horn.
|7.3k (neck), 7.2k (bridge)
|The truss rod cover has been replaced, and a small section of binding along the fretboard has been reglued.
|Original hardshell case; the pickguard and mount are included.
|The logo on the tailpiece has shrunk and is starting to lift; the rest of the body show significant checking with chips and dings throughout. There is moderate buckle rash on the back of the body, along with some finish wear on the back of the neck. The pickguard mount has broken; the mount and guard are included in the case. There are two small cracks in the body, one at the jack and one at the upper pickguard mounting hole; these are stable and do not affect the function of the instrument.
|Currently set up with 10s, low action, and optimal neck relief. There is limited downward adjustability of the bridge, but the guitar sets up and plays well. The pot codes are not visible, but the serial number dates this guitar to 1968.
