A great playing and resonant Tennessean from '66! This guitar is in good condition with a replaced vintage Bigsby and an added jack plate - the original Bigsby was cracked at some point and will be included in the case. There is a small stress crack from the truss rod on the back of the neck that is stable and not noticeable when playing. Often times you will see the binding falling apart and cracking on these, but the binding on this one is in good condition, just starting to showing slight signs of that process happening and a couple cracks. It has its original HiLo'Tron pickups and electronics that help give this guitar the Tennessean's signature sound. A true classic!

Inculdes its original hard shell case.
