Excellent condition 50+ year old guitar. However, there are some blemishes consistent with its age including some chips and cracks in the paint. There is also a manufacturer's defect in that he pick guard is not affixed properly to the body pickup next to the neck As such, the pick guard is lifted on the edge of the pickup by the neck and actually sits on the lip of the pickup. Also notable is that the handle is not attached (see photo) but can likely be re-affixed with the right tool. The case also has a previously stenciled name painted over on both sides.
