Description:  Vintage 1957 Magnatone Mark V electric guitar in sunburst finish - VERY RARE!  The Mark Series models were initially made by Paul Bigsby in small quantities starting in 1955, then taken over by Paul Barth at Magnatone in '59.

Cosmetic Condition:  Cool, vintage vibe - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & light play wear.

Neck:  Slender profile mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard & large, silver dot inlays.  Frets are in great shape with no wear.  Kluson Deluxe tuners in perfect working condition.  Unoriginal metal nut - 1 5/8" width; 25" scale length.

Body:  Double cutaway maple body with single-ply, black pickguard.  Bigsby tremolo tailpiece & floating compensated nickel bridge.

Pickups:  Two, single coil pickups with large, chrome oval bezels.  The bridge pickup is not functioning & most likely needs to be rewound.  The neck pickup, however, sounds great!  Single volume & tone controls with large knobs; 3-way toggle switch (missing its cap).  Both pots date to 1957.

Set Up:  Professionally set up by our guitar tech & strung with brand new D'Addario .10-.46 gauge strings.

Playability / Sound:  Nice, low action; smooth playing neck - very comfortable.  Cool, vintage tone from the neck pickup.

Case:  Original hardshell case included.
