Regarding originality, there has been a few changes - some would say to improve this! The wooden bridge and tailpiece are both not original, the latter being very similar to original 50s Gibson & Gretsch tailpieces!The machine heads have been definitely upgraded to original 1960s (or maybe even 1950s) Grover's! There are a few scuffs and marks throughout, and a crack on the fascia of the headstock, as pictured, yet it really does add to the character of this guitar.
The original hard case is in brilliant condition too! Weight: 4.3lbs or 3.95kg With Case. Please have a close look at the high resolution photographs below, as these form part of our description.
Please note, for all you musicians and collectors outside of Europe, this guitar will need a CITES certificate to accompany the export of this guitar, due to inclusion of the restricted rosewood material. Please get in touch for more information before purchasing. At The Music Locker we will do all we can for you to get the instrument you want. You're more than welcome to come along and have a play on this through one of our vintage amplifiers!
