The 24.75" scale length neck has acrylic trapezoid inlays and a refret with 22 medium jumbo frets on a 12" radius with a slim taper neck profile. The hardware is comprised of it's original Kluson deluxe Pat No single line double ring tuning machines with keystone heads, a replaced nut, a Gibson ABR-1 bridge with sideways vibrola and top hat reflector knobs with a 5-Ply black pickguard.


This vintage guitar is in overall very good condition for its age with some signs of play/wear. It has received a refret, new nut and a set of Throbak pickups. The binding was repaired at some point in its life, we also believe the neck may have been reset at some point as it has the tell tale signs and the neck/ shoulders have been refined with nitro and there are two small touch up spot on the neck base were it meets the body. You can still see some of the binding shrinkage splits. It has some scuffs, scratches, some dings and dents.(See Pics/Black light pics)


Guitar is freshly setup and restrung with 10-46 strings. Includes Original Hard Shell Case.
