This gorgeous natural finish beauty sports a pair of original Wide Range humbuckers that deliver warm, rich tones that are both muscular yet dynamic sounding. The semi-hollow ash body is very resonant & the silky smooth neck plays comfortably anywhere on the fretboard thanks to a pro refret. Tight neck/body connection. Professionally set up & ready for action straight out of the case.
Cosmetic Condition: Good honest play wear with that perfect true vintage look - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & some light weather checking. The natural finish has aged beautifully over the years into more a caramel color. Overall the guitar has an ultra cool vibe with a gorgeous patina.
Neck: Nicely rounded maple neck & fingerboard with black dot inlays. Pro refret with slightly bigger frets than the originals so it's super playable. Frets are in great shape with no wear. Double string trees & bullet truss rod. F-logo tuners in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine. Neck dates to '73.
Body: Semi-hollow, light-weight ash body with single F-hole finished in Natural. String-thru bridge with adjustable saddles. 3-ply pearloid pickguard has warped a little, but there are no cracks. Guitar weighs 6 lbs 12.6 oz. Great weight & very resonant!
Electronics: Original Fender Wide Range humbuckers. Bridge - 11.26K ohms; Neck - 11.34K ohms. Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs. 3-way selector switch with black "top hat" cap. Pots date to '73 & all electronics are in perfect working condition.
Case: Original hardshell case included. A little bit of the interior fabric is missing, hence the foam pads to support the bottom of the body. Otherwise the case is in great shape.
