OHSC (1957) This guitar is a KILLER Custom with fantastic tone. Chords sound HUGE and solo's sting! The finish on the guitar is 8/10 condition. The finish has typical play wear. Correct size small frets redone in 1974 show wear but still feel great. The fingerboard is a beautiful Ebony board. The neck is awesome and has a nice medium to fat round profile. Combine the neck with the SLAB body and light weight you have MAGIC in your hands!
The original pickup sounds superb. This guitar is extremely resonant and a lightweight. This guitar will be expertly packed in a larger acoustic guitar size box for extra protection.
This guitar was imported to Denmark from Rock N Roll Vintage Guitars in US. Guitar will ship from Denmark or local pickup can be arranged.
