For your consideration is this 1959 Old Kraftsman Barney Kessel model. The guitar has been played for 60 years and has a great patina and natural wear.Playability is excellent with low action with only a little fret wear. The black Kleenex box pickups have Killer tone and sustain. this is the only example I could find that still retains it's original pickguard.

Includes a modern hard case. (34)

Weight & Neck Specs:

Weight: 6.2
1st   Fret W: 1.68 H: 0.99
12th Fret W: 2.08 H: 1.14

Condition, Shipping, Setups & Expectation:

I sell used guitars and most guitars have normal play wear. I am a stickler for condition and I will not sell a guitar with issues of any kind unless stated. I've been selling guitars since the 80s and I try my best to find the best examples out there.

Please note the shipping charge is more than just a box. Everything I sell is professionally packed with approved UPS materials. I typically use new 275lb rated heavy duty boxes, 3" wide brown fiberglass reinforced glue tape, and pack the guitar to survive a hurricane. I fully insure all guitars shipped for the selling price.

I setup guitars to my liking (Medium Height) and I never buy guitars with neck issues. Please realize that a guitars setup is personal preference. It's best to have a local tech you're comfortable with do a proper setup to your liking who knows you and your preferences. I do not accept returns if you don't like how it plays out of the box. Again, setup is personal preference and I setup to my liking.

Comes with the original hard case and case candy shown. ()
