The finish on the headstock has aged nicely into a dark caramel color, with visible checking all throughout. The original finish was sanded off, and it appears a thin layer of clear coat or oil was applied to soften it to the touch. The guitar previous had an added bigsby mounted on it (included in the case), which has been removed. The holes from the Bigsby have been filled as well. The pickguard is not original, and has been painted black.
Frets show wear consistent with age, but still have some life left in them, and all notes intonate properly up and down the length of the fingerboard. Body: Solid ash body with single cutaway in stripped natural finish. 3-ply painted black pickguard and ashtray bridge with triple steel barrel saddles. Weight: 7 lb, 13 oz. Neck: C-shaped maple neck with black side dots and black dot inlays.1 5/8 nut width, 25 1/2 scale length. Original F-stamped Fender tuners function perfectly.
Maple fingerboard is in good overall shape, and edges show wear consistent with age. Frets show wear as well, but still have a good amount of life left in them. Neck is straight and plays great up and down the length of the fingerboard. Pots date to 66, and all electronics are in fully functioning condition. Case: Unoriginal contemporary hard shell case included.
