The perfect theme for what's goin' on outside my window right now. As I watch our first snowfall begin to cover the ground, this Arctic White over 3-tone burst relic job kinda fits the scene. Now all it needs is a little graphic of Santa riding an orbital palm sander, like in those classic Norelco commercials. 

Wild West Guitars in Riverside, CA lists this one as new. It's a '61 Heavy Relic with Abby wound "Red Hot" coils, alder body, 60's oval "C" neck, 6105 (tall skinny) frets and 9.5" radius. Gold lined brown tolex case included. COA & candy not mentioned, but should accompany a "new" Custom Shop guitar. Call 'em to verify! Just know that Wild West is a huge dealer with 100% positive feedback.
