Refinished black long before I acquired it about 16-17 years ago.(the finish looked old then) I guessed at the year as the serial number was finished over and the interior paper tag was missing(you can see the over spray around where it used to be),but it could be later I guess. It came with the chrome G knobs. I made an ebony truss rod cover and bound the F-holes as they disappeared in the black top.

I bought this for $1400 Can about a year after I'd seen it at a pawnshop in Edmonton while attending my friends wedding. The pawnshop owner's wife flew it to Vancouver as she commuted here twice a week. It's been my second guitar since but has, with the recent influx of employment and thus more guitars, been getting a bit of a rest lately
