This Committee is totally original the one owner who bought the guitar from new with the Bigsby tremolo option (providence available). As can be seen from the photos the guitar is exceptional condition as it has been stored for the last 35 years. I have cleaned it up, restrung it with wrapped strings that the top Hofner were provided with from new and had the original blade pickups professionally rewound and wax potted as they were not working when l received the guitar.Probably sound better than before! Chrome as can be seen is in excellent condition. The Machine heads are like new. Great action plays beautifully on the pearl inlaid ebony neck. Frets have been dressed but are original see photos. All pots and switches are original. No wear on the original neck varnish shows the guitar has not had heavy use. The original varnish has yellow patena and is crazed as is normal with Hofner of this age. Amazingly few minor marks on the body, neck and head and are hard to find. Fantastic Birds eye maple sides and back with inlays. Comes withe original flock tweed case all the clamps work, handle intact, no key , rough exterior but serviceable.
The clear Perspex pick guard has been removed. Maybe because the rear support pin attaches to the wooden base of the non bigsby model. I think it looks better without it.
