This lovely 1960 relic has some natural age in addition to its relic finish. It is nearly ten years old, so it has settled and been played in. The frets are in great shape, the nickel hardware looks great and everything works as it should.
The care and quality in the build of this one is reflected in its playability. The neck is sweet to play, and the finish on the back is smooth and makes for effortless playing. Pickups sound fab.
Comes in a non original hard case with correct Fender Certificate of Authenticity.
