CALIFORNIA--1967 Combo 900
This guitar was a 100% original, good condition, one-owner treasure. It was sold by the original purchaser to a longtime friend after years of the friend expressing his fondness for it. The friend found himself in financial straits (don't we all at one time?) and listed it on Ebay. It was purchased by a woman who was shilling for her boyfriend, who has a business breaking up vintage guitars and selling the parts. I managed to acquire most of the original parts, piecemeal, from the boyfriend's Ebay auctions. Over a period of several months, I did a complete "restoration to new". The Combo now resides back in its original mint condition case. Long may it play!
