The binding is heavy, distinctive and in perfect condition, no cracking or chipping. So is the perfling down the back perfect.Otherwise it's completely original except for an alteration to improve the tailpiece. The neck is straight, has never needed adjustment and is the same as the day I got it. The nut and tuners are good as well.
I also have a new ebony saddle and a few others for the bridge that will be in the case along with a new set of strings (or 2 if I have them) and a new capo. The top has some finish crazing, or checking, considered normal for vintage Gibsons. It also has a small crack on the base side of the sound hole about an inch long.
It goes under the soundhole perfling but the perfling is not cracked. Its been there a long time and has not gotten worse so it will probably stay the same for good. The hard-shell case is the original. Its been refurbished and has a replacement handle made from nylon webbing and the entire top and bottom has been inspected and sealed with epoxy and refinished. Please message me for any additional information.
