A Rare Tuxedo model but with an original factory Alpine white back finish that has turned to a vintage yellowed patina. According to Gibson there were very few made with the white finished back like this one. It is totally original with no changed parts or repairs.It was totally checked out by a guitar tech and found to have no structural damage. For many years it was hanging on a guitar hanger so it shows marks on either side of the volute area. Also a very fine hairline stress line in the finish under the volute as shown in the photos. Just set up and plays super smooth and shows almost zero fretwear on the original frets. Sounds amazing with the original T-Top humbuckers. Solder joints were never touched. Last year of the highly sought after mahogany neck. Truss rod was adjusted and turns perfect.
This guitar is like playing a brand new Custom at you local music store back in the day. The neck is virtually unplayed and set up professionally with very low action with absolutely no fret buzz anywhere on the board. Original purple lined Gold Gibson logo case with gold hardware is also very nice and clean. It will be hard to find another one of these. If you can locate another Alpine White Back, Please let us know since we are having difficulties finding another example.
