|Serial Number||N/A, but produced around 1965 in Japan.|
|Pricing||$495 CDN with gig bag. No Longer Available|
|Neck||Maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard. Does not have an adjustable truss rod, so it’s got a bit of bow yet plays cleanly. Dot markers; the bass side binding has been pierced where side markers would go.|
|Frets||20 narrow frets in good shape.|
|Body||Probably a Luan mahogany laminate.|
|Finish||Sunburst finish. The top appears to have received a protective coating at some point.|
|Hardware/electronics||One gold-foil pickup, volume and tone, output jack on riser. The original open strip tuners have been replaced with a Kluson-type, plastic button gear; one bushing is missing.|
|Playability/Action||Quite playable and overall in pretty good shape. The action is a bit high as there is no truss rod, but it plays cleanly and rings clearly.|
|Case||Gig bag included.|
|Comments||This is a very interesting and extremely cool guitar. It really rings and has a good sound; the ‘gold foil’ pickup appears on many recordings. The action is a little stiff for fretted playing, but it would make an outstanding slide instrument.|
