We pride ourselves on our inspections of each guitar and this particular model has been cleaned, restrung and set up to a high standard, making this ready to plug in and play.
This is in good, used condition with nothing worth mentioning. Has been loved and played so has a few bruises here and there.
In our opinion, this is all original except the neck tone pot and one of the fret marker inlays has been replaced with plastic.
Overall, this is a very rare and collectable guitar. Not only is this sure to increase in value year on year, but also it can be an enjoyed investment.
Come along and have a play!

The Music Locker prides itself on offering vintage and collectable pre-owned instruments and equipment (the Products).
We take all reasonable steps to ensure the equipment has been inspected by a competent person in the UK to ensure it complies with UK safety standards. This may mean it does not comply with the current standards in the country in which it will be subsequently used. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to ensure it is inspected by a competent person knowledgeable with the relevant electrical safety standards within that country, prior to connecting to any live electrical circuit.
It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels. Therefore, your personal preference may differ, depending on your circumstances (i.e. collector or musician), and you may decide to service the item in more depth upon receiving.
The Music Locker cannot accept responsibility for any costs of refurbishment to a standard different to the one advertised.
