Cosmetics: This guitar has wear that is consistent with a vintage instrument from the ‘50s. There is light finish checking on the back of the neck. It has light surface scratches throughout. The binding has been repaired on the headstock but still has some separation on the corners. The hardware has tarnished and has some light corrosion starting, mainly on the pickups and bridge. There a few very small chips in the finish on the top of the body. The wings on the headstock have been reglued and you can still see the line where this repair was made (See Photos Please). Overall, this guitar is great condition for an instrument from the ‘50s and it plays very well and sounds fantastic.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Modifications: The binding has been replaced on the top/back of the body. A small repair has been made on the binding around the headstock. There is no endpin, but one could be installed easily because there is already a hole for it. The wings on the headstock have also been reglued and repaired.
