Modifications/Repairs: -Non-original strap buttons -A few solder joints have been touched up
Case Details: The guitar will be paired with a gig bag.
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows expected cosmetic wear for its age; the finish is glossy with numerous chips, scratches, dings, and patches of wear. There is a large finish chip near the top strap button, and many small dings along the sides of the body. The back has additional wear and blemishes, and the back of the neck has numerous small dings. The edges of the headstock have finish wear as well.
Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with medium-low action, and is currently set up with 10s. The truss rod is functional, although the neck has an S-curve on the bass side and light relief on the treble side with the truss rod nut fully loosened. The guitar has been set up to play cleanly and comfortably in this condition. The pickguard and electronics assembly dates the guitar to 1966.
