|Thin hollow body with maple top, back, and sides
|Slim "C" profile
|.83" (1st fret), .93" (10th fret)
|Set one piece mahogany neck with bound Brazilian rosewood fretboard and dot inlays. The neck appears to have a radius of 7.25" at the nut and flattens out slightly toward the end of the fingerboard.
|Original, with single coil neck pickup and volume/tone controls. The visible pot codes date to early 1963.
|Original hardshell case, which shows moderate wear but is structurally sound.
|The guitar shows wear consistent with its age, with light finish checking, scratches, and dings throughout. There are a couple spots along the body where the binding has shrunk away from the wood, but these are secure. There is also some heavier finish wear on the back of the body along the bottom edge and on the top edge of the headstock, along with some scratches along the sides of the body.
There are a few small dings on the back of the neck which do not affect playability: behind the 2nd fret, behind the 5th fret, and along the bass side of the heel.
|Currently set up with 10s (with a wound G), low action and light neck relief. The guitar plays cleanly, and the frets are narrow and low with light wear. The visible pot codes date to early 1963, and the serial number dates to 1963.
