This player’s special is a fixer-upper, needs an overhaul and a cleanup too. It is a fairly early Silversonic with the gold engraving and bell flair as well. Body is quite straight. It appear the owner oversprayed some keys and body areas without any buffing and left the neck and bell alone. Normal dings, old dents are present, nothing very serious to my eye. plenty of scratching, and perhaps some resolder, or just solder bleed, not totally sure on this one. Pearls are nicely worn, was played a lot, leading me to think it must be excellent!
Anyhow it is very nice looking and will clean up and setup as a monster player with the complexity of tone these earlier ones are known for.
