TL:DR 100% Original  (One owner) untouched solder joints, M1- mastery bridge installed, (original bridge in case) Thumbhweels very difficult to turn from shrinking pickgaurd. pot was frozen and had to be replaced

Wow! Somehow, this is one of the best Playing vintage guitars ive had in a while, I really cant put it down. The playability is absolute on this piece, everything is as straight as an arrow. This piece has been under a bed since 1970 and It has been rejuvenated. There is not a single problem with the playability, it has an insane setup, the lowest action you can imagine without buzzing or fretting out, mainly because the mastery bridge but also this neck luckily has no distortion or ski jumps at the upper register. The electronics function 100% cleanly and theres no scratching or difficulty turning knobs, its wonderful. The juicy nitro finish has kept its sheen and the sunburst is vibrant and gorgeous to look at, especially in that Original case! The neck has been beautifully worn in and practically morphed to the human hand! Just look at that playwear on the back of the neck, the nitro is so smooth and just so easy to glide, on top of which rests and old, and resonant piece of brazilian rosewood which is super dark and irresistible. The knobs turn perfectly as is the tuning stability. This piece is absolutely a dream to play one of the most "cooperative" vintage guitars I have worked with and is definitely going to be played by its next owner constantly. Thanks for looking!

This piece has been fully setup with our "Gilded Treatment." This means instrument has been fully inspected, professionally photographed and documented along will a full deep cleaning of any residual grime and dust, pots are cleaned of debris and sprayed with contact cleaner to add a layer of cleaning and protection. Its amazing how clean pots and contacts bring so much tone back. Polished frets to allow you to "glide" over the fretboard. Dialed Nut Height with optimal slots and contact points with lubrication. Action and intonation is dead on and neck relief is perfect. The neck has absolutely no warps or humps and the truss rod turns perfectly with tons of room to turn for seasonal changes. Thank you for looking

 You'll be shocked to find how good our pro setup is! A 100$ value free! big bends fretting out is a thing of the past, find out for yourself!

Condition: According to the original owner: This piece was played heavily for the first couple years, then stored meticulously under a bed from 1970 till present day. There are dings and scratches around the body but are smooth and aged with the nitro. The neck is beautifully worn from playwear and is smooth and is effortless to play. The  original frets show 70% of life left, ~0.30" in height. 

All original grey bobbin pickups that date to 65' and pots that date to the 15th week of 65'. The knobs turn wonderfully and linearly and there is absolutely no scratchy pots or grounding issues. The electronics work 100% absoultely clean. The brown tortoise pickgaurd has warped around the rhythm circuit wheels so they are difficult to turn because of the friction between the tortoise and the rubber wheel. Otherwise, this piece plays literally like a new instrument.
