The guitar is in excellent condition, constructed of a mahogany body with maple top, one piece mahogany neck with Ebony fingerboard. The hardware is gold plated throughout. The 498R and 490T Alnico pickups and wiring loom are all correct. The guitar has been upgraded with a Bigsby Vibrato (a feature not offered by Gibson at this point), the Bigsby has been directly mounted to the guitar with the original stoptail stud holes having been plugged and painted. The original strap button has also been plugged and drop filled. The work has been done to an exemplary level and aside from the localized finish work being evident under backlight it would be easy to believe it was a factory job. The guitar is fitted with a Schaller roller bridge and stays in tune well. The rest of the finish is in excellent condition with only minor polish swirls visible.
The guitar weighs 11lbs and comes with its original Custom Shop case and warranty card.
