Description

What makes this guitar special:  With one of the most recognizable sounds in the guitar world coupled with classic good looks, this true vintage beauty is a sure fire winner with many vintage enthusiasts.  Featuring a Fireglo finish with checkerboard binding & crushed pearloid fretboard inlays.  Although the guitar is actually a 365 model, the original Accent vibrato was replaced with the more traditional "R" tailpiece.  However, the original trem assembly is included with the guitar. 

Cosmetic Condition:  Pretty good shape with some road rash - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & some finish wear.  There's a superficial crack in the top, lower bout bass side extending from the slash hole to about the edge of the side.  There's also some slight separation with both headstock flanges where the seams can easily be felt when you run your finger over them.  They appear to have have been glued & are quite stable.  There are lots of tiny pitting marks in the finish throughout the guitar, but mostly on the body.  Not quite sure what that's about, but it would suggest the guitar got splashed by something that chemically reacted with the finish. 

Neck:  Slender profile maple neck with nicely aged cream binding & black side dots.  Rosewood fingerboard with crushed pearloid inlays.  Original frets are in great shape with hardly any wear.  Kluson Deluxe tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 5/8" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length.  Neck is pretty straight & truss rods are functioning, however, there is a little bit of relief around the 12th fret.  Current string height at the 12th fret is about 1/8".

Body:  Semi-hollow maple body with bound slash hole.  "R" tailpiece is currently on the guitar, but the original Accent trem is included.  Six-saddle adjustable bridge is missing its cover.  Split-level white pickguard is in great shape with no cracks.  Guitar weighs 6 lbs 15.1 oz.

Pickups:  Original "toaster top" single coils.  Dual volume & tone controls with boost blend; 3-way toggle switch; mono & stereo outputs.  All electronics are in good working condition.

Case:  Unoriginal vintage Gibson hardshell case included.
