This is actually a very fun guitar to play. Its in great condition for its age with less than normal wear and tear. The Gibson made P-35 Kelvinator, Barney Kessel, Kleenex Box single coil pickups sound great. These pickups are very much like Gibson P-90s. Truetones were made by Kay and sold through Western Auto stores back in thew 60's. The frets have some very slight divoting around the cowboy chord area but it doesn't affect the play or fret out anywhere. The tremolo system is intact and the tuners work well. Usually these models are missing the trem arm or the tuners have been replaced. This appears to be all original except for the brass nut. The truss rod works and there is no major or structural damage. Its possible the fret board could be Brazilian Rosewood  from the way it looks and the era when it was produced. No case but will ship with a decent gig bag and will be well packed.
     Returns accepted if buyer pays return shipping. I have uninterrupted 100% positive feedback rating on Ebay (user ID dcxsound) since 1998 when I started selling guitars there. My customers are the most important part of the sales equation and I treat them that way.
