So the story goes that this guitar survived the Nashville flood of 2010, from what I can gather here most the electronics did not make it, and neither did the tuners. This is what we found upon examination.
The body retains a 56 pencil date in tremolo cavity, it's made of Ash and features a pro two tone sunburst refin, all the hardware on it looks original, please forward to pic of bridge you will notice at some point somebody drilled three holes on back of bridge and on body i assume to secure it and make it as much of a hard tail as possible? Hard to see really unless you closely inspect it.
The neck feels great like old original finish but i'm sure it muist have been altered as well, I wouldn't say refin, more liked stripped. The decal and tuners are replacements, there is no date, it's a gorgeous neck to play, feels like a D or U shape, the neck shows dark spots of humidity I guess but it plays great and needs nothing! (frets are ok, although it's always a matter of taste, they do not need to replaced at all.
The electronics of course did not make it, all three pickups look fully rewound, pots and switch are high quality replacements.
The case is ready to retire, it's done, it's correct for guitar, It would require a very talented person to repair it.
Please look at all pics and let me know any questions you have
