A clean mid-'60s Gibson openback with two significant changes. The tuners are recent Waverly 4-to1, a big improvement over the original Elton gears Gibson put on it (These Waverly gears are the same Gibson used on later Mastertone models). The other change is the magnetic pickup mounted under the head. It's a bit unorthodox perhaps but works well and of course it would be easy to remove. Very little fret wearl, comes with a nice TKL hardshell case with dual neck supports.
