Case: Original Hardshell Case
Cosmetic Condition: Guitar does have some imperfections, but is in excellent condition considering its age. The is a bit of buckle rash on the back of the guitar as well as some dings on the side. There is also a bit of checking on the sides of the guitar in the cutaways as well as a small chip on the edge of the headstock.
SETUP & INSPECTED BY OUR LUTHIER
Tech Notes: Guitar plays great with medium action and near flat relief. Everything works flawlessly and appears totally original. 10-46 Bridge and tailpiece appear original with proper foundry mark, measurement and tooling marks, and all plastic parts are era correct. Tuners are authentic and function well, but the G and high E are a bit stiff, but function perfectly and hold tune well. Frets appear original, with extremely light fretwear, very low frets (fretless wonder) original. The nut also appears original as the finish still wraps around the side of the nut. Blacklighting reveals no indication of refinish or repair work performed. Side dots are made of tortoise shell, as they should be for the age. Please ask us if you have any other questions.
