Cosmetic Condition:  Super cool vintage vibe with a gorgeous patina.  There are various minor nicks, dents & dings; light surface scratches & mild play wear.  The bridge is not original & is actually lifting up a bit from the top of the guitar.  But what really makes this guitar quite stunning, however, is the highly flamed maple neck & beautiful figuring in the back & sides of the body.  Along with the thin nitro finish, the guitar portrays a character more like a 60's Dove than a 70's.  The colors of the dove & floral motif on the pickguard are still quite vibrant.  The marquetry on the body really pops & there are no cracks.  Overall the guitar has a marvelous look to it & offers a warm, rich tone.

Neck:  Nicely rounded & very comfortable flame maple neck with cream binding & black side dots.  Rosewood fingerboard with double parallelogram mother of pearl inlays.  Original frets are in great shape with hardly any wear.  Chrome Gibson tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 11/16" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.

Body:  Square shoulder dreadnought body in a natural finish.  Solid spruce top with 7-ply binding.  Unoriginal bridge with pearloid dove inlays &adjustable saddle.  Tortoise-style pickguard with Dove & Floral motif.  The guard is in great shape with no cracks.  Flame maple sides & back with 5-ply binding.

Case:  Vintage 1960's Ess & Ess hardshell case included.
