    All original from the Kalamazoo factory apart from nut replaced with bone and re-fret by Celine Camerlynk here in London, UK, original Tim Shaw pickups and Gibson HSC. I bought this in 2012 from Mandolin Bros in Staten Island NY, there is lacquer checking on the top of the neck as it joins the body, there are also lacquer cracks on the neck at the binding, checking on the back and various minor dings – these are all cosmetic and does not affect the guitars stability or playability. Mahogany back and sides as of this model at the time, pro set up with roundwound 12’s for Jazz. Fantastic playing and sounding classic Jazz box. £2300. Collection from SE London, UK.

    I have one from the same date range. The mahogany back and sides (as well as the neck) really help to give it a nice warm sound

    Great sunburst. Mahog is nice. Best of luck.
