Had this about a year. It's a 6125 single Anniversary from 1964 in pretty good physical and cosmetic condition and excellent playing condition. The back of the neck has been refinished and the tuners replaced but that's all - the binding is fine as are the frets and it plays just fine with a great low action. Yes that Hi-Lo tron pickup has it's own sound. In order to make it surface mounted it has the coil on an L-shaped induction plate with the magnet on the side vertical surface. It has a low output and it's simply held together by being screwed to the top - there is no base-plate as there is on the re-issues , which are taller and cannot be replacements. I know it's wicked to change anything on a vintage guitar but the infamous tone switch has got to be modified; as it is just too thick on the outside positions. This is a very light guitar with a thin three-ply top and a compensated Bigsby bridge fitter, that I prefer to the original roller style. Fitted with 12-gauge tape-wound strings, it's a fine clean jazz guitar.
