I bought this guitar new sometime between 1964 and1966. According to the serial #76793 shows it to have been made in 1966. I sent it back to the factory sometime in the early 60s to have the neck reset. It came back with a mod done where the neck attaches to the body of the guitar. The neck may have been replaced and a the serial number may haveI been chnged. Baised on my memory , which is old, I thouht I bought it in 1964 . You can see in the picture the mod etc. It is still in excellent cond. I played it very little from 1985 to 2007. I play in a "old guys "band now I'm 71 years old and have put several hr. on it! It is stil almost like new. It is a gerat guitar!!
PS. I will send pictures later!
