This one is in great shape, but not quite minty like the ‘64 :) It’s a killer VI, sounds fantastic and plays great and it’s in ‘excellent ‘ condition.

This is one of the last VIs to get a May ‘63 neck (almost identical in date to the famous 1966 Foam Green ‘Spinal Tap’ VI). It was probably sold in early ‘66, pots date to late (50th week) of ‘65 and it has two grey and one black bottom pickups.

Such a cool one...I have something even more ridiculous on the way :w00t:

That is everything my VI aspires to be.

Just.

Wow.

Ah, ok! I’ll get one together. It’s not that big, I usually only keep 4 or 5 guitars around at a time :)
