Very early example from March 1955 with a light weight ash body. The guitar weighs 7 pounds 3 ounces. Most of the important stuff is original. All the finish is original. All the parts are original except the spring cover, maybe the switch tip. The guitar is refretted. It is a good job and the neck on this is round and full feeling. The original switch is here but a five way is installed at the moment. The case is the original center pocket case. Two buckles are missing. The guitar looks great and has no major issues. I think someone will like this.
