This Mosrite plays and stays in tune better than any other I've found, thanks to the professional refret and replaced tuners.  Tuners are recent Gibson individual machines.

Otherwise the guitar is all original, the neck is perfect, and the guitar set up like a dream.

The neck is dated to 1965, as do the original pots.

Included is the original case, though it does show a good deal of wear.

If you want one of these to play and enjoy, this is the one!
