Vintage Kasuga Barney Kessel Electric Jazz Guitar 1960s Japan

$ 1101.84

Fairly rare 1960s Kasuga Barney Kessel Replica. Made in Japan.
Used condition with plenty of age related marks, small indents , surface scrapes etc. The scratchplate is missing.
There is some seperation to the finish and at the joint of the heel. Please see pics. I have had my repairman inspect this and it seems sturdy and stable, its most likely just how the joint has seperated slightly over the years due to age but it is present and visible so please be aware of this. There is a indent on the underside of the neck alongside wear along the binding and wear to the finish in places.
The body shows signs of use and marks, the gold plating on the pickups is significantly worn and aged.
Its a used, pre owned guitar , getting harder to find and rising in value all the time. It plays nicely with a low action and the frets are in good shape for the age with light string marks in places.
The strings are flatwound D’addario Chromes, not new but reasonable and I’m sure the buyer will replace with their brand of choice.
The electrics are fully working, 2 x vol , 2 x tone and a 3 way switch.
Comes with a modern Stagg hard case, reasonable but not perfect fit.
