Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows some signs of use or playwear. Scuffs and scratches can be seen in the finish. The sides and edges are worn.

Tech Notes: Currently, set up with 10-gauge strings. This guitar was not manufactured with an adjustable truss rod. Over its life time, relief has been pulled into the neck that cannot be adjusted out. With the action set to standard low, this does cause some slight buzzing above the 12th to 14th frets. The frets are wide with moderate height and show only light wear. -- Pot codes date this instrument to 1963.
