This one is a beauty with all original custom color non faded Lake Placid blue finish. This is an early one with no neck binding. This guitar has some unseen issues. There were Schaller tuners and now original Klusons have been re installed. This guitar also has had humbucking pickups but now the original pickguard and pickups have been re installed. These un bound neck Jazzmasters are the better choice than the later models if you plan to use the guitar anytime.
