A dynamite player with a super cool vintage vibe in very good vintage condition! The cherry finish has a nice patina w serial number matching on the Orange Label inside the F Hole. Original Pat # pickups with Factory Chrome Hardware.

In very good vintage condition for its age, but does show signs of wear, various nicks, chips, dents & dings; particularly on the bottom edge with weather checking & some finish wear. 
There is significant wear around the neck heel as it looks like it may have been from a large strap rubbing against it, but does not impact playability! There's a very small area in the Original Tortoise pickguard near the bridge pickup that is deteriorating a bit.
No Cracks, breaks or repairs.
