This guitar features a one-piece ash body with birdseye maple “D” shaped neck and clocks in at eight pounds. The neck and trem spring cavity are both dated “7-55”, and masking tape in the control cavity reads “Mary 7-20-55”. The bridge pickup and knobs were missing, and the pickup covers were worn through to the bobbins, so they were replaced (although the originals are still kept handy). The frets are completely original – although small by today’s standards – resulting in a very lively guitar.
