It has no marks on the fingerboard and only half a dozen pick guard marks, so I am picking bought to learn, didn't work out, so under a bed, it came with a period strap and Mel Bay Guitar Chords book.

ETA: You say an 8 stamped at the sound hole? Take a photo of that area and in photoshop or picassa or whatever, manipulate the contrast and colours, I've discovered some dates that way. They were primary colours so manipulating the spectrum can sometimes work.

I didn't pay near the shipping cost you did I guess it balances in the end.

Where did you find the date. I cannot find it on this one. There is a model number obscured by the neck mount and a stamp 8 at the sound hole. But no obvious date stamp.

I understand if you'd rather not say but how much??

I think I paid more than most at $230.00 but I also have what amounts to an un-used guitar that is unique for this time being 40 to 50 years old.

It has that sound, which I'm sure can be bought new but probably not for any less money.

I'm happy with it.

Any of you experts able to tell me anything based on a serial #875H 729, hard to read as it is partially obstructed by the neck brace.

The nut was offset about a 1/16" so I popped it out and reset it on center and shimmed it up a little as the action was to low. there was some buzz on the D & G strings at the first fret. All clean after the adjustment and plays real easy, not as slick as my Strat but way more agreeable than the Tricone.

Subtle growl and restrained whine is how I'd describe the sound, not bright and punchy but definitely bluesy in an understated way. It can get loud but I don't think anyone would want to play that hard. Maybe down the road when my skills are tighter I'll push it that way but it just sounds messy when I pound it the way I can the Tricone. Of course I strung it with much lighter strings than the Tricone.

Anyway I think I got my moneys worth and for the near term it will keep me entertained.

Seller says it appears that it was never seriously played, no scratches on the pick guard and only "closet rash" whatever that is. I guess he means from being shoved around the same closet wall for 40 years.

It's birch, sunburst finish with a straight (never reset) neck and 1/8 inch action height at the 12th.

Probably over paid but until I see it can't say for sure. If it holds up to the description it's worth it.
