This is a great opportunity to get a real 1959 tv special for a players price. The intonation of the guitar is absolutely perfect and for once I have played a wrap around tail-piece guitar that does not fret out. When I bought this guitar I was under the assumption that it had all it's original parts on it, but it turns out a lot of it was reproduction so I am parting it out. I have lots and lots of parts so if you need help finding original parts or all new parts for it, please just ask.
Super light, smooth fat neck and very resonant, this thing smokes anything that gibson has made in the past 40 years!
It started out a 59' tv special with a minor heal issue. The guitar was repaired, over sprayed tv and re-fretted at Lay's guitar shop (a well know and well respected Luthier). All of the contours are there and it appears the guitar was never sanded. It is very light, well under 7 lbs and rings like a bell. It has a medium to large fat C profile neck with tall frets so you can really dig in. The over spray looks very good, but there are some areas where it looks like they tried to blend in the original finish? (areas include back of the headstock and around the horns on the guitar). There is also some very slight players wear on the back of the neck. The guitar has some weather checking, especially around the neck binding and headstock area.
The headstock retains the original finish and is/was fitted with factory Kluson Deluxe tuners. The holes are not reamed for grovers a
