Zen-On Solidbody 1965 (consignment) No Longer Available

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.
