Grey burst, steel body, harder-edged sound than bakelite, but still terrific. Looks like Fred Flintstone and I replaced 4 of 6 tuner buttons once upon a time; other two have shrunk but aren't cracking and crumbling. 1-1/4" pickup, Pat. No. 2089171, black flying-saucer knobs.
Newspapers stuffed in the body cavity are dated Nov. 30, 1945, as I recall.
$400 local SoCal pickup; $450 shipped (ground but not USPS) in the USA. Add 3% for PayPal. No case, just an oversize gigbag, but I'll double-box and/or bubblewrap securely._________________Friends don't let friends ship via the US Post Office.
