A really nice banner, the only issue being a reglued center seam on the top. The crappy original tuners I replaced with some purloined tuners gibson made for their reproduction banners, same footprint, nickle really nice. This banner has excellent neck angle, string height, top contour, finish, just a great playing sounding original crack free example. By no means a big fat neck as you often see from the period. No FON, so you can make your own guess as to the year.
