Featuring a three piece maple neck and bound rosewood fingerboard with beautiful cross haired abalone inlay. Both frets and fingerboard show light play wear, however there are some larger string divots on the first fret. There are some small finish cracks are the neck/heel joint. The headstock does have upgraded German Sperzel tuners, but left the original screw holes visible. Binding throughout neck and headstock show cracking and some chips.
Pronounced Florentine cutaway really adds aesthetic depth along with the arched flame maple top and back. Minor finish checking is throughout, but there is one large finish check on the bass side upper bout. Obvious play wear is throughout and there is light buckle rash on back side.
Single humbucker between both neck and sound hole offers a really sweet tone. Pickup does have a cracked top and shows heavy corrosion/tarnishing. Pickup and electronics are fully tested and 100% functional. Electronics could use a cleaning.
Majority of this guitars hardware is original except for the Sperzel tuners. The original pick guard is no longer with the guitar.
