Some history here. I acquired this guitar in 1985. At the time it had no pick guard and a gold PAF style humbucker in the neck position. Why, I have no idea, as it did nothing to sonically alter the sound. So now it has period correct DeArmond pickup restored and a period correct pick guard. The pots and wiring are all original (save for the neck pickup).  This guitar is what would be considered "player vintage" based on its condition. You can see some wear on the back of the neck and the body paint has some light checking here and there. There's a small crack on the top underneath the neck pickup area from the idiot prior owner who swapped out the factory pickup for the humbucker. You'll also note the "F" on the string bridge tail pin is not in white as seen on some other models. Not sure if that's intentional or not.  It was recently set up professionally (action & intonation) and it sounds and plays like a dream. The case is original I believe. The inside is fine but the outside leather is starting to loosen but it's structurally sound.  Any international offers will require negotiated shipping as I can't set the rate on the listing for overseas.
