What makes this guitar special? This is a great vintage Holiday electric with loads of vintage charm and excellent sounding pickups. The gold-foil pickups are really the highlight of this guitar, as they output classic chime, mild sustain, and a distinct dynamic profile all their own. The 2x2 volume and tone knobs are simple and provide ample control over this traditional setup. The chunky C shape neck has a nice full-in-hand feel that moves surprisingly well with both rhythm and leads alike. The finish still looks great, especially for its age, and overall, this is a killer vintage piece that tonally and visually will be a great addition to any roster.
Condition: This guitar is in good condition overall if not better. It does have various nicks, dings, dents, chips, scratches, and other forms of wear, but remains in tact, functions, and still looks pretty good. It is missing 2 spacer/washers from its tuning machines. The frets show only light wear and still have a lot of playing time left in them. The neck is comfortable and the truss rod functions.
