All original, gold parts are extremely clean and golden. Gold Kluson Single Line tuners are in great shape. Back of neck may have been touched up with black paint as the serial badge #T24967 is black (normally Ive seen them silver) and part of the tuners looks like theyve seen some black paint.Red finish has started separating and chipping around the edges and is very brittle in those areas. Im not sure what kind of paint or finish they used but this seems to be a common issue with these vintage Belmonts.
Guitar was cleaned, fingerboard oiled, and a new set of Daddario 10 gauge strings was just installed. Guitar sounds great but may require additional fine tuning to suit the individual player.
The tilt neck adjustment works well. Neck is straight and frets have plenty of life left. Electronics work and the switch allows you to quick change from low-rhythm type setting to full on lead type volume. Tone control and switch can sometimes be intermittent may need additional cleaning or TLC.
All electronics look original inside with potentiometers that date to 1959. See video demo for details on the controls and the settings. Message me for video demo link.Original black & white, 2-tone, faux-gator case is in decent condition overall with working clasps and hinges and modified canvas strap handle. The case does have some marks and wear but its still doing a good job and looks great with the guitar. Please see all pics for more details. No PO Box addresses please.
