Very good survivor here. It had been somewhat 'revived' before I got it. They autographed it, but alas, I don't know? Maybe they were testing their pen? So when I plugged it in it was very unhappy. Crackling and cackling, bad. I took off the pickguard and cleaned everything and put it all back tight with new strings. The pickups are really nice, very raw but they dial back and clean up well. The switches are on/off for the respective pickup. The pots do what they're supposed to do now and I think all of its electrical parts are original. I see I replaced the bridge screws, they're stainless. The high E side action is almost all the way down, low side is above that a little. It plays surprisingly well with halfway reasonable action. It tunes well and is super light at 5.3lbs. If you wanted to spend a little time I'm pretty sure this could be dialed right in. Level and polish the frets, or replace them, though there is no appreciable wear.
The neck is plywood. Love that stuff, I remember it from when these were new and I was a kid. It's solid and straight. I didn't try to adjust the truss rod. Someone had previously removed the strap button from the neck and put new ones in the normal place on upper bout and butt. You also have a custom artwork neck plate that I think might be native to this guitar, not sure. The way the holes are offset, it's not a off the shelf part. The lovely chipboard case is included.
It's no use, I've already said too much! Make a offer.
