We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


The more we see recreations of classic models, especially those that are being relic’d, it can start to feel easy for folks to forget just how cool and irreplaceable true vintage mojo & character really is. Well played, but still rock solid, these are exactly the kind of guitars we love to be able to offer. All the attitude, soul & sound you’ve been after, and all for a great price. Thoroughly inspected and set-up by the experts at Cream City Music so it's ready to play straight out of the case.

Cosmetic Condition: Good honest play wear, just the way we like 'em - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches & pick wear. There's a top crack that runs through the soundhole on the treble side near the pickguard. These are fairly common & do not affet playability or sound quality. Overall the guitar has a cool look to it with a great vibe.

Neck: 3-piece maple neck with cream side-dots. Rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them. Gibson Deluxe strip tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 11/16" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length.

Body: Square shoulder dreadnought with tortoise-bound top & back. Solid spruce top with rosewood bridge. Tortoise pickguard & multi-ring rosette. Mahogany back & sides. There are no electronics & the guitar weighs 4 lbs 7.3 oz.

Case: Hardshell case included.
