This example has some of the MOST Beautiful looking AAA Figured eastern Maple Tone Woods I have seen on one of these early 60's guitars in a long time so nice in fact I had to bring it here to JVGuitars WoW... just have a good look.... This one came with nearly all of it's original vintage parts intact and in very nice shape at that, including tuners, tailpiece, strap buttons, wiring harness...this baby was made from the very same woods used on what is now know to be the finest guitars in US history the late 50's - early 60's ... were also made from. This top & back look like something you would expect to see on an old 1959 Gibson Les Paul Burst highly figured - flamed with mineral streaks and all WoW!!!. This one has its neck properly refinished due to extreme wear but it had no damage or any cracks or structural repairs needed at all just a clean up cosmetic re-fin..to preserve its beauty and done in its correct original nitrocellulose lacquer thin skin finish. The Body was not bad but lovingly touched up minimalist approach so to preserve the integrity and stop any further finish degradation and as you can see she looks very natural as it look its 52 years of age with patina and vibe yet is amazingly well preserved example done with that in mind. The Pickups are Airline Diamond Single Coil Gold leaf Pickups and the Pickguard and covers are with vintage custom covers and plates. The guitar is not perfect its 52 years old and is a REAL VINTAGE guitar not a re-issue but it is as nicer example than most 52 year old Silvertone 1429 Deluxe Thinline guitars and its surely in the upper percentage condition wise for sure...and WoW!... it really Sings great and it Plays beautifully. The Neck is nice and straight and these are the original frets in very good - excellent condition too and its beautiful rich looking rosewood fret-board set-off with its gorgeous old school celluloid position markers that are also in excellent shape. The Play Action is GREAT!...nice & low and easy and these single coils gold leaf specials give this one a sweet vintage sound just like I remembered these sounding as a youth clear and articulate with plenty of variation in tone from the 3 individual Pickup and switch setting combinations and possibilities. This is a great one to own and its a genuine piece of the great USA guitar history. This example has been lovingly well preserved and fully ready to serve another 52 years.
