    Been looking at these for a while now. This one came up on Reverb for a pretty decent price with a case. The known defect on it was that there is a chip on the back of the headstock (which seems smaller in person than it did in the pictures). I get a pretty good sound out of it, but the low E string buzzes. The seller mentioned the frets had recently been crowned and polished and it was set up with 9s. I'd prefer 10s. My guess from preliminary exam is that the nut slot it cut just a shade too low and there isn't enough fall away. Maybe a truss rod adjustment would do it. I'm too tired to tackle any of it now. I've referred to this as the eye fungus guitar because it grows on me a little more each time I see it. It's bizarre when it is sitting still, but I feel like when you see someone playing one it looks amazing. This is my reward for two years of not smoking cigarettes. I'm actually coming up on two and a half years, but was being more responsible with money on the actual anniversary. For good measure, here's a video of Muddy Waters playing an original single coil:
