Description: Arch-top guitar. Built in 1971. Cut-away.
Comments: Tone is full, great for playing clean. I've used a Fender perfomer over the years. Recently purchase a Fender De Ville twin. Sound great with a tube amp!
Comments: Gibson should stand alone on quality. The one draw back is that, being an old guitar, repairs are expensive. I needed the frame work in the body re-glued, cost was $350.00
Pros: Great sound, easy to play. I recommend flat wound strings for playing straight-ahead jazz. Show up with this axe and you will rule!
Cons: Expensive repairs, fragile, need tender-loving care. Not for a gig with the Who.
