Really pleased with this one. Needed a bit of TLC but in pretty good condition with no rot to the binding. The back of the neck has been refinished and I've replaced what was parts of three sets of tuners with some nice oriental 18:1's similar to those on the current Electromatics. Very light with a very thin three-ply top that is quite alive but no distortion and all braces ok. Original small frets which must be very hard because they are all fine and truss rod works well. I'm not a great fan of the Hi-Lo tron pickups but at 3.5k it's very clean if low in output. I did toy with replacing this with a modern one but found the casings are now too high to fit beneath the strings. This is because here the pickup guts are just held together by the casing, whereas the new versions have proper base plates. A curious design, these pickups - in order to make something able to be surface mounted, the magnet is actually on the side of an L-shaped induction plate that holds the coil. Just one volume knob and the tone switch - nothing or one capacitor being usable but the really dark one is hopeless and I'll change it - vintage correct or no! I prefer the bigsby bridge here to the original "space-control" - more mass and better compensation. It's a really good player and I appreciate the light weight. I've fitted a set of 12-gauge tape-wound strings and it's a very effective and sweet-sounding jazz guitar, with a much clearer voice than the usual humbucker equipped type, with the thin top really adding some acoustic presence.
