    '61 three pickup custom at Carter' of the last single cutaway

    Tried out this very good '61 single cutaway custom at Carter's. Is one of the first number in the range of the 3-4 '61s shipped. Neck is more like the SGs from that year than a 60 burst. For a custom it is very light at right at 9lbs. Original other than a refret with no breaks that I could...

This one is fairly close to original. in its current...

    Wanted...beat up historic player grade guitar....well repaired headstock OK.

    Looking for a gigging guitar that i dont have to worry about being stolen or broken. Function over looks. Headstock repair is OK as long as solid though I don't want one with a twisted neck. Prefer an r0 but interested in r8 or r9. Will buy just the husk or complete guitar.
