If there ever was a vintage Goldtop that could run with the Memphis Mojo Burst in terms of gigged-to-death vibe, it would be this guitar!

Sorry for the disparity in photo quality, but mother nature was not cooperating while I was trying to shoot this bad boy!!! :facepalm:

Love the checking and the greening.

I would have to shim the P-90's though. I am not a fan of the raised pole pieces. They catch my pick.

Love this! Always wanted to find an orignal finish goldtop with that kind of checking & greening.

So was it re-necked with a later 50's neck? I guess you can't complain too much if that is the case.

I assume the re-neck explains the position of the headstock logo.
