Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows expected wear for its age, with finish cracking and assorted small blemishes on the glossy finish. The cracks in the top are in the outer veneer layer, and do not affect structural integrity; areas in which the veneer was lifting have been reglued. The hardware has tarnish and rust from age, but is fully functional. The back of the body has moderate buckle rash.
Serial Number: 646860
Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with low action and optimal neck relief, and is currently set up with 10s. The narrow frets are very low with light wear and divots present on the first few frets; the guitar has been set up to play cleanly and comfortably in this condition. The truss rod is adjustable. The serial number dates the guitar's production run to 1966-67.
