100% original & in marvelous condition for being roughly 50 years old. The sunburst finish is still very strong & vibrant, and the back of the body shows off some pretty bird's eye figuring in the maple. The slender profile neck is silky smooth & plays perfectly up & down the fretboard. The Pat No. humbuckers deliver warm, rich tones & offer a truly dynamic voice to the guitar. Professionally inspected & set up by the experts here at Cream City Music, so it's ready for action straight out of the case.
