  • Vintage Hard Case ( Very nice but not original to the guitar)

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - Some nicks, dings and general normal wear here and there, also a few surface lines of unknown origin on the front. There are a couple of superficial cracks on the back which can be seen in the photos.  Neither of which when examined or pressed seem to go beyond the finish as there is either little texture to it or any type of movement when stressed. It appears aesthetic mostly.

The original finish has been lightly sanded to be a more of a matte finish on the front. The neck has a wonderful natural relic smooth wood feel and may have been sanded also. The frets have had a fair amount of wear in the usual range but not presenting any issues. The Bigsby tremolo system is in fine shape, just has some minor scuffs and scratches. The overall condition is very good and solid. 

WORKING CONDITION: Very Good - This guitar is a delight to play. Nice and bright and resonant with medium to low action and clean and clear notes both picking and bending throughout the neck. The pickups and controls are in fine working order and the Bigsby tremolo works perfectly. The overall working condition is very good.
