Condition: All original except tuners, which are almost identical to originals. Good condition all around. No breaks, had a very well done neck reset to add more hide glue to the heel and set the proper angle, making the joint stronger than when it left the factory. The dark cherry finish has not browned anywhere. Beautiful lacquer checking present on back of the neck and body. Scattered dings and checks around body and very light buckle rash with some scratching on the control plate. Untouched Solder joints which makes the electronics sound unbelievabley good. Overall in very good condition for an instrument from the 60's, excellent player, setup by our great team here with a fresh set of 10's.
