This has to be one of my favourite finishes  – “Iced Tea” – and this is a really nice example – the figuring in the “plus” top is really three dimensional, and the top is thankfully relatively scratch free.  The back and edges have been similarly well looked after

Electrics are all original and crackle free.  As shown in the pics this guitar appears to have an Alnico V #1 in the neck and #2 in the bridge.  The guitar has a 60’s neck and comes with the original Gibson Hard Case as pictured.
