    This guitar has seen some things... Bought by the current owner with a stripped body, it's been refinished by Alan Knight with a matching headstock. This is a good finish and really works with the overall aesthetic of the guitar.

    The neck, dated February 1966, had been refinished with a thick poly which was also removed and the neck given a light oil finish. The fretboard is in reasonable condition with plenty of life left in the frets. Binding is in good shape. The nut has been changed.

    The pickguard, being the pre-CBS nitrate type, has shrunk as you'd expect. Thankfully it isn't too extreme and thus does not affect playability. Other plastic parts are in great shape.

    Electronically there have been changes. Neck pickup is dated March 66 with the bridge being from July 1968. The volume and tone pots have been changed on the lead circuit. The rhythm circuit pots and capacitor are correct. 

    The guitar comes in a hardhell case.

    This guitar plays and sounds as good as it looks. The rhythm circuit is suitably dark but the lead circuit never gets too nasal, retaining plenty of the depth. This coupled with a smooth vibrato makes this quite the prospect.

    A great looking guitar at a killer price, we all need an offset in our collection…
