Modifications

It had DeArmond's in it when I got it, which obviously were changed at some point waaaay back. Obviously repainted (not very well). Imperial tuners? I've seen ONE other 1971 6192 with Imperials, but that's it. Not sure if they are original or not, but there is no chipping or other indication that other tuners would have been there. Knob locations are correct for the serial number. Added Bigsby. Added Tru-Arc compensated stainless steel bridge. Neck has been plained, 10.5 radius, re-fretted with jumbo frets, plays like a mutha.

Unusual factory features

This appears to be one of the last 6192/6193 before the transition to the 7000 series of Country Clubs. "Made in USA" stamped on the back of the headstock. It's obviously refinished, and it appears to have been "natural" originally.
