This guitar belonged to my friend the great Chicago Bluesman Homesick James. It plays as is and the neck is quite good not an obvious reset. However there is a high fret on the first string when its played at the 7th fret. It plays beyond that and up to the 12th fret and beyond. ( See Video on youtube ) The head stock was added at somepoint and is not original nor are the tuners. The Vintage Gibson pickup works well and looks to be an addition by Homesick. He did much of his own work. Bakelite knobs appear to be original and it has a really cool sound when plugged in. It is pretty quiet acoustically. I’m leaving the country and just hate to let it go. I had hoped to enjoy it and potentially improve it but its not fitting into my plan. Its Funky with a Capital F. But the real deal, a great piece of history and can be really cool for the right player or person that can give it the new life it deserves. Check out the Video and feel free to shoot me any questions.
Thats me in the picture with Homesick. Comes with a very old chip board case and the original broken saddle.
