What makes this guitar special:  Super cool, true vintage player with killer looks & a dynamite sound!  This beauty is mostly original aside from the bridge & tuners, which are both serious upgrades, making it a much better playing guitar.  The single P-90 delivers bone-crushing tone & the guitar has a gorgeous acoustic resonance which makes it tons of fun to play!  Professionally set up by us with fresh strings & low action, this one is hard to put down!

Cosmetic Condition:  Fabulous vintage vibe - this was obviously someone's go-to guitar & was well-played.  There are various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & some finish wear - all the hallmarks of a guitar that knows how to get the job done!

Neck:  Nicely rounded, yet wide profile, one-piece mahogany neck with cream side-dots.  Beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays.  The bass-side dot in the 12th fret is much lighter in color than all the others & is most likely a replacement.  Original frets show some light wear & have plenty if life in them.  The original strip tuners were replaced with nickel Grover Rotomatics which are a very common upgrade for this model & are in perfect working condition.  1 11/16" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod is in good working condition.

Body:  One-piece, solid mahogany body finished in that iconic, classic cherry we all love.  The original wrap-around tailpiece was replaced with an upgraded bridge with adjustable saddles, making the guitar much more intonatable.  Original 2-ply black pickguard has a couple of small cracks, but fits in with the overall character of the guitar.  Guitar weighs 6 lbs 0.7 oz.

Pickup:  Original "dog ear" P-90 single coils with black cover - 7.80K Ohms.  Master volume & tone controls with original black "top hat" knobs.  Pots date to '65 & all electronics are in perfect working condition.

Case:  Newer Gibson hardshell case included.
