Description

This started its life as a 53 wrap tail and was converted by Jim Weyandt (Jam City Guitars) to a 59 burst. Neck angle was corrected, routed for hum buckers, retopped with old flame maple and loaded up with mostly vintage and some repro parts. The headstock overlay and logo are original. The neck bindings are original. Pickups are early 60's patent numbers. I will swap in double white PAFs for a price differential. Tailpiece is correct short seam vintage 59, vintage correct long studs, bridge is correct vintage no wire ABR-1, tuners are big hole single line 59 Klusons (retipped). Guitar had Grovers so the bushings are adaptor type. Original strap pins, pick guard (re-cut) and bracket, truss cover (rolled type), 58 harness with Centralabs and vintage bumblebees. Repro parts include Throbak pickup rings and pickup covers, knobs, poker chip and jack plate. Case is the original 53 brown 4 latch. This is the lightest one you will find at 7 pounds 13 ounces (not weight relieved). USA shipping rate is for insured Ground. Next day or two air is additional.
