Modifications

Maybe originally sunburst. at some point refinished natural but roughly, surrently being refurbished. Had a NOS gold melita bridge on it (will be replaced with synchro style rosewood bridge. and Gotoh star backed tuners. will also be replaced.) I will probably mount a pickup selector switch in the end of the bass side F-hole

Unusual factory features

Factory re-neck probably 54-55 neck
has the square ended truss rod
