Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows moderate signs of age and use, with finish checking on the front of the body, and small chips and dings throughout. The sides of the body have some slight finish cracks as well. There are a couple small gaps between the heel and the body from the reset, however the neck is secure to the body and on pitch. There are also filled spots on the bridge in front of the B and E string bridge pins; these were cut before the neck was reset to give the strings an angle over a low saddle.
Serial Number: 394184
Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with low action and moderate neck relief, and is currently set up with 12-53 phosphor bronze strings. Because the neck does not have an adjustable truss rod, heavier strings would not be recommended. The narrow frets are medium height with some small divots, mostly under the treble strings up to the seventh fret. The serial number dates the guitar to 1977.
