    A big thanks to Tattooed Carrot!


    Sounds and plays like a dream.... put new strings on last night and put it through its paces.

    I couldn't be happier!

    Very cool. Old guys like me remember the days you could pick those up for $500. I've let a couple slip through my fingers and I sure wish I had them back. They are pure R&R. Enjoy.

    My father bought mine from a friend at church the asking price was $70.00 with original faux gator case and Harmony tube amp all pieces looked as new. I'm not absolutely certain but I believe it was 1971 I was 13

    IMO the neck on this one is perfect, it could serve as the template for what Gibson should be putting on the reissues.
