This guitar, the Standard from the Short Horn Series built between 1958 and 1966 is 100% original and has all of the classic features: black finish with a white seal shaped pickguard; double cutaway semi-hollow body with a "Solid Center" construction consisting of a masonite top and back on a pine frame; one lipstick tube pickup; Coke-bottle headstock; and a four-way adjustable chrome plated brass bridge with a Brazilian rosewood saddle. This model is similar to and often confused with the two pickup 3021 model made famous by Jimmy Page. This guitar plays and sounds like a dream. You can feel and hear the sweetness that ripened within it over the years. It comes with an original custom hard shell case. Description from VintageSilvertones.com
