While it has been refinished, that does not diminish the fact that this is still a great player offering great projection and tone.
Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard has been reset and now offers excellent play ability and action. Both frets and fingerboard show minor play wear. The nut is unoriginal. There is some refinishing blending that stops roughly under the 12th fret.
The body is in overall good condition. The body was refinished after the neck was reset. The binding on both the top and bottom shows shrinkage throughout as well as some cracking from the refin.
Gibson Deluxe tuners work with ease. Original pick guard is in great shape while showing some shrinking and warping. The bridge is showing some cracks on either side of the saddle, but the tone is not diminished.
While there was electronics put in this at some point in its life; they have since been taken out or no longer work.
Original chipboard case is included in sale.
