Description & Specs

The following specs were carefully collected and recorded by a skilled technician. For a more detailed description and questions regarding sound, feel, or cosmetic condition, please visit our Lincoln Avenue showroom or call to speak to one of our Used and Vintage experts.

Pickup Measurements: 7.1k (neck), 7.3k (bridge)
Hardware: Original except for the strap buttons, which have been replaced with strap lock buttons.
Modifications/Repairs: The strap buttons were replaced with strap lock buttons.
Case Details: Original hard shell case.
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows cosmetic wear throughout, with much of the clear coat missing from the binding. There are finish chips in the clear coat along several areas of the binding and body edges, along with light finish checking along the sides and back of the guitar. There are small finish cracks along the neck heel as well; all of these are cosmetic and do not affect the structural integrity or function of the guitar. The neck is mostly smooth, with a few small finish dings along the back, and some hanger rash along the headstock near the nut. The side dot at the 3rd fret is missing, and there are small finish cracks along the headstock inlay.
Serial Number: 90214
Tech Notes: Currently set up with 10s, low action, and optimal neck relief. The guitar plays cleanly along the neck, and the frets show only light wear. The pot codes date to 1973; while the serial number also dates to 1973, the stamp under the bridge humbucker dates to early 1974. The pickup appears to be original to the guitar, therefore the guitar's year is being listed as 1974.
