 A prime example of just why Gibson started a lawsuit against Japanese builders and makers in the 1970s! This disco era beauty is ready to strut its stuff the next time you're out in some platform boots and bell bottoms or if you're rocking out to your favorite BeeGee's album! An actually incredibly versatile guitar that shows just what those Lawsuit guitars were all about, vintage mojo at a working player's price, what is not to love!

Weight: 7.4lbs

Finish: Original

Body Material: Maple

Body Details: Maple Ply top back and sides, the body shows some light play wear on the front with a few small dents near where the right arm comes across the guitar as well as some light finish swirling near the pickup controls, two screw holes for a pick guard that was removed before we acquired the guitar; the back has some buckle rash and light finish dents around the center of the body as well as a few small chips in the binding around the body (on both front and back body binding), the gorgeous original natural finish shows off the flame figure of the maple top!

Neck Material: 3 piece maple neck with rosewood purfling

Fingerboard Material: Rosewood Fingerboard

Neck Profile: Thin D

Neck Thickness (IN): 1st fret: .879", 12th fret: .849"

Fingerboard Radius: 12.00

Nut Width: 1-11/16 in

Neck Details: Maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard and block inlays; the finish is in overall clean shape with some wear behind the 10th fret by the B and e strings as well as a small blemish behind the G string by the 6th fret; the headstock has a blemish on the bottom left (think where a guitar would hang from) as well as some finish knicks on the top right corner of the headstock. The binding and rosewood fretboard are in great shape; the inlays have shrunk some due to age, but they are stable and wont cause any playability issues!

Fret wear: Some denting and polishing is apparent on the first 5 frets, specifically under the G, B, and e strings

High E string gauge: 10

Electronics: The electronics appear to be period accurate/original

Pickup Details: Original/Period correct

Hardware: Original Chrome hardware

Case Details: hard case

Modifications / Repairs: None

Cosmetic Condition: Very Good - For its age and build this lawsuit era guitar looks and feels great, the cosmetic issues don't detract or distract from the natural look of this sweet vintage beauty. All of the blemishes are described more in detail in the description!

Tech Inspection Report: Plays smooth with medium-low action and a little bit of string buzz in the first position. The buzz does not translate to an amp and it plays exceptional for its age. Strung with 10-46.
