Two controls, one for tone color and the other for volume, are located on the treble side for instant, convenient use. The powerful well-designed pick-up unit has adjustable pole pieces for perfect balance and unusual clarity of tone

Often, Gibson steels of this era are harvested for Spanish guitar restoration projects, especially the pickup, jack plate, and "speed knobs." However, this Royaltone is in very good shape, sounds great, and is nicely original. It has age appropriate signs of use, including some dings and scratches on the back. The front displays very well and is well preserved. The P-90 style pickup is strong, sounds great, and is ready to gig. 

Very Good Condition (VG)
