All Access/Backstage Pass
- Jul 18, 2001
I just got this a few weeks ago in a super smooth deal off REVERB. It was sold to me as a '67 which it could very well be but I'm thinking it may be a little bit earlier. It's got the higher spaced logo and crown, wide bevel guard, and what looks like original control knobs. I pulled the varitone works and harness and the "uncanned" pot is dated 65/29. It appears stock with no breaks or serious damage. I've never seen an Ivory varitone knob so I'm assuming that was added. I'm really happy with this guitar. I've got a Callaham bridge on it now as the original was mounted with the screw towards the trapeze and half the strings are riding on the screws and buzzing. The bridge is in good shape though so I'll guitar around to flipping it at some point. Serial # 8003XX Anyway, any thoughts....
