Body: Semi-hollow, maple laminate

Neck: Two-piece mahogany neck with maple stripe and medium “C” profile, 1 1/2” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 14” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Open-back tuners, two pickups (rated at 196.1 kOhms in the neck and 94.1 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, two-way mini toggle switch, volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: This vintage Starfire is HOT! The top has plenty of checking lines, dings and scratches, as well as two filled holes behind the bridge, but overall is looking nice and is free of any structural damage. The back and sides show a good amount of buckle rash, including two patches worn down to the bare wood. Beyond this there are also a handful of small dings and light scratches, as well as an inch-long blemish along the top-side binding, located along the bass-side lower bout. The neck has its fair share of dings and dents, but overall feels pretty nice. The headstock shows plenty of edge wear, especially along the crown, as well as significant amount of scratches along the face. This Starfire is road warrior!

Playability: The strings are set-up nicely, with medium action and minimal buzz.

Modifications/Repairs: The bridge has been replaced, leaving two filled holes from the original bridge exposed. A bone nut has been installed.
