We're not drooling, you're drooling! Goodness gracious of life! Want to unleash your inner Pete Townsend, this rock classic is the one to get you there. 

Crafted in 1974, this wine red Paul consist of the classic mahogany construction and maple top. Let's talk about that amazing mahogany neck (.801"-.991")! It sports a slim C profile and 12" rosewood fingerboard that is comfy and fast (1.68" nut)!

The pickups and electronics are all original. The mini humbuckers have all the clarity and brilliance they're known for with the right bite when cranked through some overdrive (N: 6.00k, B: 6.01k).  

This ol' tone dog definitely shows signs of playwear and love (but come on, it's almost 50 years old!). That's because she doesn't belong in a showroom somewhere. She belongs on stage and in the studio. Overall there is beautiful checking. Looking it over, you'll see dings along a couple of the edges of the top of the body. Buckle rash and a couple of dings adorn the back. There is a sizable ding near the heel of the neck (but the position of it doesn't impede or affect your playing when you're on the upper frets). More signs of age and love on the headstock. It's almost 50 years old, has years of play on it, but it's nowhere near ready to retire!

A few changes have been made along the way. The tuners, nut, jack plate, and knobs have all been replaced but these replacements only help the instrument.

And it weighs in at 9.5 lbs! 

The badass luthiers here at EMS have given this girl a full setup with 10s. Out of the case, it's ready to go! And will take you on a hell of a tone trip, lemme tell you!

Get this awesome vintage player and we'll ship it out swiftly the next day in the included hardshell case.
