• A gorgeous thing. The previous owner carefully restored it and stripped back the paint and refinished it, in it's glorious natural wood. He has made a staggeringly good job of it too, because the edge banding is the original and yet is flawless around the hollowbody cut outs and edging. They have added ibanez jazz tuners which are much stronger than what I imagine was on there originally.

    Pickups work great didn't play it much on an amp because its loud enough for the type of playing I wanted to do, but has a lovely sound. It has a floating bridge which is easy to set up with a ruler / tape measure. Also a removal whammy bar.

    Comes with original 50's case with crazy wallpaper lining. There's a few spare adagio strings in the case too. Offers around 250, I'll be happier to discuss the price if you come and get it from me in SW12. You can give it a play, but remember it is a guitar which is over 60 years old.

    Thanks - donation will be made to NHS charity after the sale.
