Some string scratches on the head stock.
Body and neck are spotless.
Color is spot on, a perfect DJ gold top color
When i got the guitar i wasn’t sure if the pick guard was correct so i ended up tracking down an original 1968 correct pick guard. There is a picture of the guitar on Dave Johnson website, its the guitar without the knobs.

8.8 lbs

Its one of the best guitars i have ever owned or played, its sounds and plays just as good as my 1953 p90 Gold Top. You will not be disappointed with this guitar.

At this time, i would prefer to meet at the philly guitar to handle the transaction and inspect the guitar. if i don’t have any interest for the philly exchange i would at that time consider shipping..

$8500.00

Thank you for looking,

Now that's a fantasy guitar. Henry McCullough recently died. He played one of those at Woodstock (with Joe Cocker) and later in the early 70's with Macca and Wings. (and many other gigs along the way)

GLWS. Somebody is going to get a killer guitar if it's a real player! :cool:
