Gold Supporting Member
Washed Cherry finish plaintop with flame at certain angles. Has mineral streaks indicative of an Eastern Maple top. As always the red is more pronounced in the pictures than it is in person.

8.75 lbs with neck measuring .912 at the 1st fret and 1.026 at the 12th.
Pickups are '57 Classics. Has RS kit installed and longer stainless steel bridge posts.
Tailpiece is an RS lightweight aluminum, I will include the original zinc one as well.

Custom, Art, & Historic case. No COA as they were non-existent in '98. This year is also highly thought of and are getting high$$ nowadays.
Great shape with a very small ding in the clear coat on the back otherwise the back and the rest is very clean. Some minor fret wear in the cowboy chord area, otherwise she is 100% and sounds terrific.

$2800 I'll get PP fees, you get Shipping.

Fully insured Ed Ex shipping to the lower 48 United States only.
