ON H O L D ----- WHOA! 8 lbs, 4 oz!
Here's some info in short form. I'll elaborate in a bit. ====
VERY light, played just a little "factory aged" VOS '57.
They did some (what I would call) plating rub off of gold h/w AND weather checking,
(SEE "ENHANCED" PHOTOS re; checking).
* The pickup covers look most like the "natural light" photo in real life. Digital flash increases tone of gold.*
NOTICE - I added some OUTSIDE shots to get a better look at the gold. Last several photos.                   
 (we had SUN here today in Oregon...WOW!)
There's a tiny ding on back bottom edge near binding and a miniscule scratch on back of neck (see photos).
Nice chunky neck - depth is 0.88" at 1st fret, 1.03" at 12th, nut width is 1.69".
I "THINK" the nut was replaced (by a pro) with bone (photos), otherwise all original.
DID YOU SEE IT WEIGHS ONLY 8 lbs, 4 oz? That's EIGHT pounds, FOUR ounces!!!!!
Plays and sounds great!
