Cherry sunburst, "pinstripe" flamed-top. All-original guitar with the following notes: re-soldered pickup covers, original Kluson tuners re-installed after Grovers, original brown/pink hardshell case.

A breathtaking "Burst" from the last production run, with the typical cherry-sunburst still unfaded, in excellent conditions and with all its original parts, with a stunningly beautiful flamed top featuring a "pinstripe" pattern. The guitar is structurally solid with no cracks and a straight neck. Very light traces of playing wear, more visible traces of belt-buckle wear on the back, some finish gone in a small area of the neck base next to the cutaway; the front of the headstock reveals the impressions of the Grover washers, while on its back the mark of the Grovers' base-plates is almost completely hidden by the Klusons plates (for this detail please see the last two pictures). Besides that, a really clean and gorgeous guitar.

Pickups are Patent Applied For (PAFs) with re-soldered nickel covers and original M-69 rings. Original plastic parts: pickguard, back covers, jack-plate, switch tip and ring, as well as the "metal-cap" control knobs typical of 1960 Bursts. Original hardware: tune-o-matic ABR-1 bridge with no retaining wire, nickel-plated aluminum "stop-bar" tailpiece, Kluson Deluxe single-line/double-ring with original shrunken tulip buttons. All original circuitry, including Sprague "Black Beauty" capacitors, pots and wiring.

The original Gibson brown case is in exceptionally fine shape - it is the flat-top, 4-latch model commonly associated with earlier Pauls.

Really an incredible guitar which has it all: rarity, beauty, originality and sound.

This guitar is NOT in our Milazzo shop. However we'll be glad to answer questions from serious collectors.  No time-wasters on this one, please. A direct inspection of the guitar can be arranged on certain conditions after we feel that there is a real and serious interest in its purchase.
