    It came from your neck of the woods, I believe...

    Was owned by a recording/touring musician from the early 60s on - been on a lot of stages and in some studios :)

    All original except for a refret. Really sweet, neck is a medium/large soft V and the pickup is very expressive w/ lots of chime. I'm happy to be the new owner, going to be heading into the studio myself this winter to do some recording with it.

    That is about as "real" as it gets.
