1960’s GOYA 335 Style Lipstick Cherry-burst Electric Guitar from Italy w Case1960’s GOYA 335 Style Lipstick Cherry-burst Electric Guitar from Italy w Case

Here is an amazing guitar made in the 1960s or maybe the early 70s. This is a beautiful grained wood body and neck making up a very unique package here. This is a semi hollow body with a single lipstick pickup at the neck position. This could be a Danelectro brand pickup that was changed out or added at some point in time. This is the way I got it! The pickup shows heavy oxidation but works just fine with its distinctive lipstick vibe. The pickup has been set in a piece of fiberglass and looks professionally installed. This is a large bodied guitar with 16” at lower bout and 12” at upper bout and 20” long overall body. The neck has 20 frets and a 25” scale. This guitar came to me with a missing bridge. I installed a Gibson style tuneomatic bridge and set the bridge for perfect intonation. This guitar has the factory original tail piece with trem bar missing. The control pots turn with some resistance and would benefit from contact cleaner and WD oil. This Goya body and neck is very typical of Italian made instruments of this period with heavy checking of finish and finish cracking. I tried to get pictures of this condition. I think too much lacquer was used in the finishing process in this period of time, Too much shinny gloss! The neck frets show almost no fret wear. The neck is straight with working truss rod . the action is super low. You will like the looks and playability of this guitar. I have found a hardshell case for this guitar after looking for years to find one. The case is huge! Guitar is well protected. Please ask questions if you have any. 35.00 shipping to lower 48. Signature required at delivery. I would like to add to the description that the control pots turn 360 degrees without stopping. The volume pot responds to lower and higher settings. The tone pot does not have a lot of effect but some veneration in the tone. I think this guitar would benefit from new high quality CTS mini pots 250K. This condition is common to a lot of 50 year old electric guitars.
