Got this one last week, and have spent some time playing it. It is such a fantastic guitar. Super easy to play, very resonant, no dead frets and the pat# is seriously amazing.
It has seen some use and has a fair bit of chips and dings, and the neck heel cracked somewhere along the line. I really don't mind, since the fix is nice and solid, and it's also the reason why I could afford it.
Other than that it's all original, including the case, except for a refret and missing outer tuner rings.

It weighs in at 6,6 lbs, pickups is 8,6k (bridge) and 7,7 (neck). Pots are dated to autumn '63. Serial: 155964

I'm pretty sure this is a stayer, and it will be used a lot.

That looks fantastic! Congrats!

Are the knobs reflectors without the inserts or top hats?

Yes, it appears they are missing the inserts. Didn't notice it at first. It's helpful to have a new set of eyes on it:)

No, it's the original nickel one, but it looks shinier on the photos than in real life.

Aha, I see. Maybe I'll replace it with a historical correct one sometime. I kinda dig the yellow switch tip, though.

Beautiful. The Cherry on the originals was much nicer than the Faded Cherry on the Historics.

Yes, original pat. number. Never been rewound afaik. I read somewhere that higher output like that could occur among the pat. numbers too, though.
