What makes this guitar special:  Just recently acquired from the original owner & exceptionally clean for its age.  100% original & aside from a few minor dents & dings, the guitar is near mint condition!  The Cherry Sunburst finish is still very strong & vibrant, and the gold hardware has hardly tarnished.  A pair of killer sounding humbuckers & a pro set up from Cream City Music make the guitar a dynamite player! 

Cosmetic Condition:  Superb condition & very clean for its age.  There are a few minor dents & dings along with mild surface scratches, but overall the guitar is in great shape!
