This 1956 Esquire is completely original with no modifications or replaced parts. It has the original case, strap, bridge cover, and polish cloth. A certificate of Authentication from Norman's Rare Guitars signed by Norman Harris is included. The pickup reads 6K and has a crisp, clear sound. This guitar shows very little playing wear, considering it's age. The frets are still playable and most of the finish on the fretboard is intact. There is only minor chipping on the edges of the body and the pickguard is still in nice condition. The Tweed case is original and in great condition, with working latches.
