Original tailpiece is present. The tuners have been replaced. It is outfitted with a clear head, and a maple bridge with inserts. Repaired Heel crack present, and overspray / refinish throughout. The patent number and original badge are in great shape, and present on the interior of the rim. Comes with recent gig bag.
