2022.1.9: I don't know if it is authentic, but it is signed and I have never seen one with a curly maple neck before.
When it arrived, the pot was loose, which caused the wiring to the jack and selector to be shredded.
The pickguard is also very warped and the pearl layer is peeling off, which is typical of this period.
The frets are partially stuck and the nut itself has a widened groove, so the release of the plain strings is questionable, so it would be best to replace it.
2022.1.21: I had the lock nut replaced with a GOTOH GHL-2 and the frets rubbed together at the workshop.
The fretboard R is 300, so the nut is a little higher on the 1st and 6th strings, but I think it is acceptable.
The springs were also weak and the tuning was not stable, so I installed GOTOH power springs (x2).
It was a 2023.7: collection, but I sold it because I never really played it.
